David Welch, Friend, Advocate, Inspiration, Loses Courageous Battle to Brain Tumor
Date:1/14/2009

NEW YORK, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- David Welch, a great friend to The Brain Tumor Foundation lost his battle with brain cancer on January 7th at his mother's home, surrounded by his family.

David fought his illness with courage and dignity. Through his efforts and the development of his website, 38lemon.com, he shared his personal battle and encouraged and inspired thousands of others also living with brain cancer. So named because of his diagnosis of a lemon-sized brain tumor at age 38, David received the James S. Elkin Memorial Award for Humanitarianism for the creation of this site which educates the public about brain cancer and provides a platform for those with brain cancer to communicate with others suffering with a similar diagnosis.

David was a great supporter and advocate of The Road To Early Detection, a project of the Brain Tumor Foundation. As a show of his support, David designed 1st MRI Day, created to enhance the efforts of the Early Detection campaign and remind people that the only way to detect a tumor early is through the use of MRI brain scans.

We are all deeply saddened by David's passing, but through his example and because of his courage, we at The Brain Tumor Foundation continue our efforts to find a cure to fight this disease.
