Brain cancer needs attention too

15 October 2012, 10:58

Breast Cancer is terrible

And I value the global effort to create awareness for this disease But the following remains of concern:



1. More children die from brain tumors than leukemia or any other cancer.


2. More women under 35 die from brain tumours than breast or any other cancer.


3. More men under 45 die from brain tumors than prostate cancer or any other cancer.


4. More women die from brain tumors than cervical cancer."

5. More men die from brain cancer then ANY other cancer.


6.These facts are not known by the public and healthcare industry


Please join the discussion every Thursdays on Twitter (#braintumorthursday) follow me @thejartender to create better awareness. These stats will not change unless better funding is geared toward brain cancer. We are especially looking for media, celebrity and corporate attention and you can assist by sharing/reposting this with EVERYONE
