May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month
Did you know brain tumors are responsible for more cancer related deaths in children than any other disease?
May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month (#GoGray), and September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (#GoGold). But we believe, until a cure is discovered for this horrible disease, children fighting brain cancer should be recognized all year long. We invite you to join us in our mission and #GoGoldAndGrayEveryday.
GO GOLD AND GRAY EVERYDAY
Show your support for kids fighting DIPG and all brain tumors. It’s an easy way to raise the awareness needed to get tough to #DefeatDIPG. Brain tumors are the leading cause of death by disease for kids in the United States. DIPG accounts for 10% of all pediatric brain tumors but nearly 50% of all pediatric brain cancer deaths. DIPG most commonly affects kids between the ages of 5-9 years old, has a typical survival time of 9 months from diagnosis, and an overall survival rate of nearly 0%. Still, less than 1% of federal research funding goes to pediatric brain cancer research. We believe kids deserve more! Please join us today and #GoGoldAndGrayEveryday!
