National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS) advocated for the bipartisan Senate Resolution 245, designating July 17, 2019, as “Glioblastoma Awareness Day.” Introduced on May 16 by U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), with the support of co-sponsors Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), Martha McSally (R-AZ), and Ed Markey (D-MA), S.Res. 245 will raise public awareness for glioblastoma (GBM), the most common and aggressive form of brain cancer, and leverage support for research, treatment development, patients, and their families.
Head for the Cure Foundation along with dozens of other brain tumor organizations were excited to endorse this resolution.
On June 11th, S.Res. 245 was approved and passed by the full United States Senate. Find out more.
Join Head for the Cure and the ENTIRE brain tumor community as we aim to honor those who have fought and are fighting a glioblastoma and act by sharing stories and encourage advocacy as we all work to defeat brain cancer step by step!
