Today (October 24th) is Brain Cancer Awareness Day in Canada.
Canada currently has one of the highest rates of brain tumour incidents in the world. Between 1992 and 2008, 13,340 Canadians died from glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) alone and research is needed now more than ever to fight this disease.
This year is the fourth annual Brain Cancer Awareness Day in Canada. On that day, foundations like Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada hope to make people aware of the devastation of this disease, but also letting everyone that there is HOPE!
