Shining a Light on Patients and Caregivers During Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
Throughout September, the National Brain Tumor Society has been recognizing Childhood Cancer Awareness Month by honoring our most vulnerable brain tumor patients – children – and their families, as they confront the challenges of living with this disease. We've shared stories from our NBTS community – Mac, Luke, and Theo – depicting the twists and turns patients face and the emotional toll experienced by caregivers.
Brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer-related death in children, as well as the most commonly diagnosed cancer in children 14 years old and younger. With such limited progress made in treating pediatric brain tumors, we know the time to act is now. Make a gift today and help to accelerate the rate at which we discover, develop, test, and approve new treatments, while working together to advance a cure.
Give today for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
