Brain Tumor Awareness Month: Be Inspired and Participate

This month, we have 31 days to come together and bring the brain tumor cause into the spotlight. Our goal is to raise awareness, share information and take steps toward improving the brain tumor experience.


Social Media: #BTAM

Connect with the ABTA on social media for updates on brain tumor awareness month and more. Use the hashtag #BTAM to keep the conversation trending.

To celebrate the month, we are excited to launch #TipTuesday. Every Tuesday we will post valuable advice on Facebook and Twitter using #TipTuesday.

AMP UP: Toolkit to Share Your Story

Throughout month, we encourage you to lend your voice in raising awareness by sharing your brain tumor story with your local media (TV, newspapers, radio).

We developed the documents below to help you get started. The sample e-pitch and Letter to the Editor can be downloaded and customized to your specific experiences. If you have any questions or need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the Marketing Communications Department via the information below.
