May 7th also marked the 10th Anniversary of the Seattle Brain Cancer Walk! It was a beautiful day in sunny Seattle at the Seattle Center to walk in honor and memory of the many who battled brain cancer and for those who are still battling. Dr. Charles Cobbs discussed the latest in research that he and his team at the Ben and Catherine Ivy Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment are working on and Catherine Ivy herself was in attendance! It was a moving moment to see all of the Survivors in their green shirts gather together.
The walk has raised over $365,700 to date and donations can be made for this year’s walk through December 31st, 2017 at www.braincancerwalk.org ! 100% of proceeds benefit brain tumor research in the Northwest at The Ivy Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment.
Lastly, please subscribe to our BrainCancer.org Youtube Channel and watch Dr. Charles Cobbs “Brain Tumor 101” series of videos on many different types of brain tumors and treatment options. Our entire library of videos are free to the public and available on YouTube for patients, family, caregivers and the general public.
During this month of Brain Tumor Awareness, we hope that you will all join us in “Going Gray in May” to bring more HOPE, Awareness, and Education for brain tumors/cancer. #GoGrayInMay #BTAM
