Brain Tumor Awareness Month

Bike To End Brain Tumors

Foothill – Californian’s Let’s Ride For The Brain Tumor Society (Open to change Naomi just made this quick)

For our team’s June blog, we want to highlight a rarely discussed cause in the automotive industry. Brain Tumors. Today, nearly 700,000 Americans are living with a brain tumors. And many more will be diagnosed each year. Taking the time to highlight a fantastic organization that’s mission includes “unrelentingly investing in mobilizing, and uniting our community to discover a cure, deliver effective treatments, and advocate for patients and care partners.” – The National Brain Tumor Society.

Your friendly auto repair team at Foothill Auto Service has been directly impacted by losing a loved one due to a brain tumor. As a shop & a family, we want to share and educate our clients and others about the work that the National Brain Tumor Society does and how you can support them alongside us. “The National Brain Tumor Society has funded more than $38 million in brain tumor research grants and awards to hundreds of researchers at various leading institutes globally and in the U.S. to find better treatments and a cure.”
Given the turmoil that the Covid-19 Pandemic has placed on our world, it’s fascinating and optimistic to have the return of in-person events for NBTS. Below are upcoming events put on by the National Brain Tumor Society that are in-person and virtual! Disclaimer: These events are taken directly from their website.
