COVID-19 Information

Ralph DeVitto
President & CEO, ABTA

Our brain tumor community is no stranger to navigating through the difficulties and uncertainty of life. And now, with COVID-19, our physical and emotional well-being is tested once again. Some members of our brain tumor community may be especially vulnerable to this virus, and while we must be extra careful to protect ourselves by staying home, I believe, there is no community better poised to persevere.

 I want you to know that you are not alone. Your ABTA, your community, is here for you.

Today, and in the days ahead, I encourage you to reach out to the ABTA to assist you with whatever you need. I hope the information and resources below help you to navigate this challenging time.

-Ralph DeVitto, President & CEO, American Brain Tumor Association
