May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month. The ABTA is coordinating a number of activities - and we want you to join our Bright Ideas campaign! Here's how you can raise awareness in May:
Follow us on Facebook and Twitter
The American Brain Tumor Association has a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/theABTA and Twitter handle at www.twitter.com/theABTA with daily updates about brain tumor news, events, patient services updates and much more. Follow us to stay up to date on the latest in brain tumor advancements. For Brain Tumor Awareness Month, our goal is to elevate the visibility of the disease and the organization through likes, shares and re-tweets of brain tumor facts, features and photos that we share throughout May.
Light the Way in May
The ABTA has started a Bright Ideas! Honor Wall in our office. You can click here to buy a Bright Ideas! light bulb in honor or memory of someone in your life, and we'll post it on the Honor Wall. We'll be posting pictures our Facebook and Twitter pages to show it growing. These light bulbs will help us "light the way" as we work each day to advance the understanding and treatment of brain tumors.
Join a BT5K
The BT5K's are helping make breakthroughs and raise awareness around the country, and we want you to be part of it! Join us as we advance the understanding and treatment of brain tumors. No 5K in your city? Register as a virtual walker and help us make breakthroughs no matter where you are. Join us in:
We can't wait to see you there! Visit www.bt5k.org for more details.
Take Five for Brain Tumor Awareness Month
Wear a gray ABTA wristband and give one to your friends, family members and co-workers. From now through the end of May, you can take part in our special “Take Five For Brain Tumors” promotion and purchase five wristbands for only $5—that’s half off the usual price. Visit the ABTA online store and use the promo code BTAWARE.
Wear Your Gray In May
Gray is the color of Brain Tumor Awareness and you can wear your gray in any way you want! Wear it during the day by hosting a "Gray Day at work." Wear it online by turning your Facebook profile picture gray or putting the ABTA's Twibbon on your profile picture. Or wear it just about anywhere by purchasing our gray pins and bracelets at the ABTA Online Store. This May, let others know that you support the brain tumor community.
