Brain Tumor Support
Victims and Their Families Yearn for Information
About 612,000 people in the U.S are living with the diagnosis of a primary brain (malignant or non-malignant) or central nervous system tumor.1 The American Brain Tumor Association estimates about 64,530 men, women and children were newly diagnosed in 2011 with a primary brain tumor. This includes both malignant (24,070) and non-malignant (40,470) brain tumors.
Based on these statistics, you likely know a family member, friend, work associate or acquaintance who has battled a brain tumor. Those brain tumor victims and their families yearn for information to educate themselves, to understand treatment and to cope.
