About Brain Cancer:
More than 22,000 Americans are diagnosed with a malignant brain cancer every year. Brain cancer and brain tumors do not discriminate. Brain cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths for children under 19. About 60 to 70 percent of these cancers are glioblastoma (GBM) – the deadliest form of brain cancer with a life expectancy after diagnosis of only 12 to 14 months.
