GBM Awareness Day
Save the Date: July 22, 2020

This year, we are once again working with our champions in Congress to officially designate a dedicated Glioblastoma Awareness Day in the United States.

Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common and deadliest form of brain cancer, impacting approximately 13,000 men, women, and children each year. It's taken the lives of too many across the country, and treatment options remain limited. We hope you will join us virtually for GBM Awareness Day on July 22nd to honor and act for GBM patients, families, and care partners, as well as recognize the tireless work of researchers and medical providers.

In the coming weeks, we'll share ways that you can honor, learn, and act on #GBMDay. For now, we need your help to advance the resolution through Congress by asking your representatives in the House and Senate for their support.

New Brain Tumor Clinical Trial Report Released

It can be hard for patients and care partners to keep track of new clinical trial opportunities opening across the country, especially during the current public health crisis created by the coronavirus (COVID-19). However, there are many brain tumor clinical trials still actively enrolling patients, and this report provides a summary of the studies that have recently opened or started to evaluate potential new treatments for brain tumor patients.

Reflections on the Two-Year Anniversary of The Childhood Cancer STAR Act

"On the two-year anniversary of this bill becoming a law, we celebrate the progress, from the National Cancer Institute’s work on survivorship research and initial work on biospecimen collection to the CDC’s expansion of its early case-capture program, we have seen action and a willingness to engage with the patient advocacy community from these important agencies."
