This September, the team at Foothill Auto Service wants to highlight a very different topic that the automotive world typically focuses on for our September Blog; Brain tumors.
Did you know that today, nearly 700,000 Americans are living and fighting with a brain tumor? The National Brain Tumor Society estimates that approximately 70% of all brain tumors are benign or non-cancerous. About 30% of all brain tumors are malignant. “A malignant brain tumor is fast-growing cancer that spreads to other areas of the brain and spine.”- NHS Inform shows data that approximately 58% of all brain tumors occur in females & 42% of all brain tumors occur in males.
Your family at Foothill Auto Service is 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 ultimately a cure.”

Below are two upcoming events put on by the National Brain Tumor Society; given the current pandemic climate, both events are “virtual” and can be completed individually/online, so sign up and join us today! Check out this content we have taken from their official site located here.
NBTS Fall Challenge: Miles for Milestones – Sunday, October 17, 2021
NBTS is uniting its fall walk and race events to share in one incredible combined virtual event on October 17, 2021. And with the implementation of their new mobile app, it will be easy to track your miles in support of their mission.
