Despite the efforts of some of the world’s finest researchers to develop better therapies, individuals who are diagnosed with brain tumors still do not have adequate treatment choices. In fact, the outlook for brain tumor patients has not improved significantly in the last 20 years. You can help change that situation by joining us in the fight for a stronger brain tumor research program – that means more federal dollars for brain tumor research, strong support for translational and clinical brain tumor research programs, and enhanced collaboration among brain tumor researchers.
The NABTC is also working to remove barriers to quality care through elimination of the Medicare waiting period. Your voice is needed to persuade Congress to enact legislation to end the two-year waiting period to receive Medicare benefits.
