Go Gray in May






May was Brain Tumor Awareness Month.

Every year during this time, people from all over
world are raising awareness about brain tumors
and their impact on patients and their families.


To help people better understand about brain tumors, we create videos that briefly explain the different subtypes in an understandable way – what it is and how it can be treated.


One type of brain tumor that we want to focus on is gliosarcoma. This brain tumor is especially rare and one of the more aggressive types. It affects the brain’s glial cells, which are responsible for supporting and protecting the brain’s neurons. For more information, you may view the video below.


We hope that this will help raise awareness about gliosarcomas and other types of brain tumors. #BrainTumorAwarenessMonth #GliosarcomaAwareness #BrainTumorAwareness #BTAM
