Last May, the United States House of Representatives declared May “National Brain Tumor Awareness Month.” By a voice vote, the House approved H. Res. 1124, a resolution sponsored by Representative Janice Schakowsky (D-IL), and by this action established May as National Brain Tumor Awareness Month.
The news about the brain tumor diagnosis of Senator Edward Kennedy has raised the entire nation’s awareness of brain tumors. This news has touched us all, not the least because Senator Kennedy has been a tireless champion of those who need access to quality health care and the latest medical treatments. The passage of the resolution is another important effort to direct attention to brain tumors and the pressing need for more research aimed at deepening our understanding of the causes of brain tumors and accelerating the development of new and better treatments.
The Brain Tumor Center here at Wake Forest University Medical Center is committed to finding better treatments and hopefully, one day, a cure.
From the WFUBMC website:
It has been said that if a cure could be found for brain cancer, it would solve the mystery of all human cancer. Our goal is to solve that mystery.
Please join me by wearing gray this month to support Chad and the countless other BT patients in the US who are living, suffering and surviving from this terrible disease.
Awareness = Research & Funding = A CURE!
