Voices Against Brain Cancer Commends Family for their Ongoing Efforts to Spread Brain Cancer Awareness
Date:5/31/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 31, 2013

On May 31, Voices Against Brain Cancer, an organization dedicated to brain cancer research and advocacy, commends a Massachusetts family for their continuous efforts to raise money for brain cancer and for spreading awareness about the disease.

He was 29 years old at the time of his diagnosis and had just recently gotten married. Surgeons were able to successfully remove the malignant tumor. Sereno participated in a clinical trial at Duke University Medical Center and received chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

The article goes on to say that “only about 4 percent of those diagnosed with GBM will live five years, but Sereno refused to fall victim to hopeless statistics.” This November will mark the five year anniversary of his first diagnosis.

Sereno’s sister, Denise Nolan, told the Milford Daily News, “Brian changed his lifestyle to work out every day and eat only organic foods, and 4-and-a-half years later, he’s doing amazing. He refused to accept his diagnosis and now he has a son who will be 2 next month. There aren’t many stories like this, and we want to give hope to people newly diagnosed that they can beat this."

Nolan and her family and friends participated in their fifth Boston Brain Tumor Ride in Waltham in order to fundraisefor a cure. Since 2008, the family, in honor of Sereno, has raised more than $100,000 for brain cancer research.

Nolan went on to say, “Reaching the $100,000 mark was huge because there
