The Brain Tumor Foundation Pays Tribute to Legendary Yankee Bobby Murcer

NEW YORK, July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The Brain Tumor Foundation (BTF) mourns the passing of Yankees icon, Bobby Murcer. His talent and heart, both on the field and off, will be cherished -- and deeply missed.

"If I can save lives, I'm in," was Bobby's immediate response to being asked to join the BTF team as an advocate and spokesperson for The Road to Early Detection Campaign.

Bobby was to be honored at The Brain Tumor Foundation's Annual Tribute Dinner on November 19th, 2008 for helping to increase public awareness about the importance of the early detection of brain tumors. He was also going to be involved in the September launch of the Campaign's first Mobile MRI Unit which will begin offering free MRI brain scans to people in New York City. Eventually, The Road to Early Detection Campaign will roll out nationwide.

"Regrettably, brain cancer has taken Bobby Murcer from us earlier than we expected -- earlier than any of us wanted," said Michael Schreiber, Chairman of BTF. He promised that, "BTF will continue its mission to make early detection of brain tumors customary and affordable. Because, by finding and treating a brain tumor early in its development, thousands of lives may be saved; thousands of loved ones like Bobby Murcer. Bobby was ready to push the public to recognize the effects of this dreaded disease and the importance of early detection. His memory will live on to fight this battle."

The Brain Tumor Foundation offers its deepest condolences to Bobby's wife, Kay, and to the entire Murcer family.

BTF raises awareness among medical professionals and the public about the need for the early detection of brain tumors while continuing to offer support groups, medical referrals, peer-matching programs, the website http://www.braintumorfoundation.org, and events including the annual Brain Tumor Awareness Day conference.
