With October just around the corner, its easy to find plenty of information about breast cancer awareness and all of those celebrities affected by the disease. However, there are still plenty of other great initiatives that deserve just as much attention. We recently spoke with the good folks at The National Brain Tumor Society who let us know about an important event coming up soon. The National Brain Tumor Society invites you and your family to join us at our exciting conference, "Living With a Brain Tumor" – A Conference for Patients and Families on October 8-9, 2010 in Dallas-Ft. Worth.
With over 600,000 people in the US living with a primary brain tumor and over 28,000 of them are among children under the age of 20, it is critical to gain knowledge and build awareness for the brain tumor cause. Friday evening will feature a Reception and Photo Gallery of patient and caregiver stories from all across the country. Saturday's conference brings together a multidisciplinary team of brain tumor health professionals from the DFW area who will speak about the latest treatment advances, quality of life interventions, cognitive issues, support resources, and so much more . Don't miss out! Register today!

National Brain Tumor Society is a nonprofit organization inspiring hope and providing leadership within the brain tumor community. We exist to find a cure and improve the quality of life for those affected by brain tumors. We fund strategic research, deliver support services, and promote collaboration. NBTS was formed in 2008 by the merger of two leading organizations that had served the brain tumor community: the National Brain Tumor Foundation and the Brain Tumor Society.
Both legacy organizations had been formed in the 1980s by parents and other concerned individuals who were committed to increasing both research funding and access to resources specific to brain tumors.
