February, March, and April. That is what stands between us and Brain Tumor Awareness Month. There is a lot of work to be done if we want to see real change this year. Last May, I posted some tips, but by then it is too late. If we want to see gray in May, we need to start asking now. Please take a few minutes to write to your favorite newspaper, tv station, magazine, etc and tell them about brain tumors and brain cancer. The more people who do this, the more they will understand it is a story their readers/viewers care about.
Now is also the time to plan your events for May. We are working on Concert to Cure (slight name change from last year) in Wichita, and we are lending what support we can to other events around the country. Race for Hope in Des Moines is in its second year, and they have big fundraising goals for this year. I’d love to hear about what is planned in your area. Please post a link, and I’ll try to get events posted on the Operation: ABC “Annihilate Brain Cancer” Facebook page.
