Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation's New Campaign Aims to Raise Awareness in May and Every Day

Asheville, NC, May 02, 2016 --( The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation believes the conversation about brain tumors is bigger than just one month.

That’s why the world's largest nonprofit funder of childhood brain tumor research is kicking off Brain Tumor Awareness Month with the “May and Every Day” campaign. Awareness tools include educational information, patient stories on social media and a new public service announcement.

With more children dying of brain tumors than any other form of cancer, the PBTF is encouraging people to join the fight for a cure all year round.

“A child’s brain tumor diagnosis is devastating for families,” said Robin Boettcher, PBTF president and CEO. “Brain Tumor Awareness Month gives us a great opportunity to amplify their voices and rally supporters to support families while we push for a cure.”
