Two UCLA Neurosurgeons to Be Showcased in Documentary for the First Official National Brain Tumor Awareness Month
Date:4/30/2009

wareness and support, Miles for Hope is hosting a radio talk show called "Brain Tumor Talk." This radio show, which will eventually be weekly, will showcase leading physicians, cutting-edge treatment and discussion regarding brain tumors and treatments. The radio show will be accessible world wide through the internet and telephone. The first episode will run on April 30, 2009 to kick off Brain Tumor Awareness Month, which starts on May 1, 2009 and will feature Dr. Duane Mitchell, Associate Professor of Neurosurgery at the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke. The topic for this week's show will be on those newly diagnosed with brain tumors.

Most people remain unaware of the actual magnitude of brain cancer. According to resources, brain cancer is the leading cause of solid tumor cancer death in children under the age of 20. Other cancers receive the much needed awareness and funding which has led to promising treatments. Just look at the vaccine developed to prevent cervical cancer. "The time has come for people to be aware of the need for the funding of brain cancer research, which will lead toward better treatments, and towards finding a cure. No donation is too small, and all donations are tax-deductible," said Gibbs.

The documentary will run over the internet at www.milesforhope.org. This has been made possible with the assistance of Maverick Interactive and TG Web Media, two of our technology sponsors. The episode was originally recorded to run nationally on television and was never aired. We wanted to finally get it out to promote national awareness, and thought the internet would help us reach our targeted audience, and also give people the ability to view it "on demand." "Since there are actual surgical procedures filmed, viewer discretion is advised." The documentary will be available for viewing starting on May 1, 2009 and will remain on the website for vi
