May is here!! I know a lot of you would like to get involved in an event, but it is hard to know where events are being held. Last year, we had a pretty decent list on the Operation:ABC “Annihilate Brain Cancer” Facebook page, but this year, I haven’t had the time to update there. It is quite a bit faster to make a list on the blog, so I’m going to list stuff here. These are just May events, listed by state. Please share with your family and friends in these areas so they can help spread awareness, too! If you know of an event that I missed, please feel free to list it in the comments.
