A Statement of Unity

CHICAGO, Ill., June 12, 2020

The American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) denounces the senseless killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and the racial discrimination and social injustice that continues to impact countless people of color throughout our country’s history.

The ABTA staff and Board of Directors recognize racism impedes all facets of human life. As a public health organization, it is with unwavering conviction that we aim to address health disparities to ensure that all people, no matter their race, color, religion, gender or age, receive equal access to treatment, information and support services as they navigate a brain tumor diagnosis.

The ABTA stands with all those who demand change and is committed to working toward eliminating racial discrimination to give rise to a new day where America embraces the power of diversity.

If you or a family member is facing a brain tumor diagnosis, please know that the ABTA stands with you. We are here to support you throughout the brain tumor experience. Please contact us at 1-800-886-ABTA (2282).



Founded in 1973, the American Brain Tumor Association was the first national patient advocacy organization committed to funding brain tumor research and providing support and education programs for patients, caregivers and their loved ones.
