Grey Ribbon Crusade(TM) Promotes National Unification in the Fight Against Brain Tumors
Date:5/8/2009

Encouraging People to Become Involved During May's "National Brain Tumor Awareness Month"

WASHINGTON, May 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This week American Idol David Cook and his family shared the sad news of his brother's death from a brain tumor. Unfortunately many other families will suffer this same type of loss -- over 200,000 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor in the United States this year. In an effort to bring awareness and ultimately find a cure, the newly formed consortium known as the "Heroes of Hope" announce the debut of the Grey Ribbon Crusade to commemorate National Brain Tumor Awareness month. Over 200 individuals and 48 not-for-profit charitable organizations representing all 50 states have joined together to solidify the presence of the brain tumor community while raising the level of awareness and funding for brain tumors.

Like the well-recognized pink ribbon for breast cancer awareness, the grey ribbon is the symbol for brain tumors, which are the leading cause of solid tumor death in children and affect over 200,000 people each year. People and organizations can join the cause at www.greyribboncrusade.org. There is no fee and everyone who joins will receive a grey ribbon to wear in an effort to spread awareness of the cause.

"The work the medical community can accomplish in its quest to find a cure for brain tumors is greatly enhanced by the involvement of organizations that make up 'Heroes of Hope'," said Henry Friedman, MD, Deputy Director of The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke University Medical Center. "Now having one cohesive resource across the nation brings more focus and strength to this cause."

The Grey Ribbon Crusade seeks to create dynamic action in the drive for funding of brain tumor research through a united force agai
