Reasons to Run for Brain Tumor Research *
  • About 120 types of brain and CNS tumors have been identified to date, and some have multiple subtypes. Each tumor type/subtype is genetically distinct, making the search for treatments or a cure extremely difficult.
  • For every 100,000 people in the United States, approximately 221 are living following the diagnosis of a brain tumor. This represents a prevalence rate of 221.8 per 100,000 persons.
  • Brain tumors are most commonly treated by surgery, followed by radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or both. Little progress has been made in finding new treatments the past two decades.
  • Brain tumors are the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in children.
  • Brain tumors are the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in males ages 20-39 (leukemia is the first).
