September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

As you may know by now, September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. For the thousands of children diagnosed with brain tumors, the fight is a long, hard road. National Brain Tumor Society is working tirelessly toward a systemic change in the way new pediatric treatments are being discovered, developed, and tested.

Throughout the month, the pediatric cancer community will share facts and resources with parents and caretakers, as well as raise awareness to the larger population. We're asking you - the brain tumor community - to help us join in and raise awareness about children battling brain tumors by taking part in one or more of our activities.

Please visit our pediatrics page and share our infographic, attend our September 18 video chat where we'll discuss pediatric brain tumor research and resources, and share our brain tumor infosnaps on social media. Let’s work together, as a cure can’t wait!
