RAISE AWARENESS

May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month — all month long we are expanding awareness about brain tumors through community-powered education and providing new opportunities for you to connect, share, and get involved. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of all those affected by brain tumors. Join one or all of our online activities!

Head to the Hill and Congressional Call-in Day

May 6, 9 AM — 5 PM

Join us in person for Head to the Hill in Washington, DC for our annual advocacy event. Head To The Hill has become a powerful vehicle to ensure the voice of the brain tumor community is being heard on Capitol Hill. Space is limited, so we strongly encourage you to do everything you can to make a decision quickly. We hope you will be able to share this experience with us in 2014!

Register or find out more about the event and lend your spirit and voice in person.

Can’t make it to DC? Your voice still has impact! Join the congressional call-in day, May 6, to ask policymakers to support important legislative issues. 


#BTVoice: Sharing Our Knowledge

May 18 – 31

What information were you looking for when you or a loved one was diagnosed? If you could go back, what questions would you ask your neurologist the first time you met?  Where did you turn to for support, and what is the one thing that made a difference in your quality of life?

We invite you to share your knowledge and experiences with others in the brain tumor community. Tweet out your tips and resources for other brain tumor survivors during the last two weeks of May, or submit them through our website. Be sure to use #BTVoice with every tweet.

We will feature the most retweeted and the most-liked tips on our #BTVoice page, and share them with others facing brain tumors.
