How to tell people they have brain cancer
Education initiative was sparked by survey of more than 1,400 patients.
Brain tumor patients and their families face uncertainty, a sense of feeling alone, and helplessness. To diminish that burden, the The National Brain Tumor Society recently announced a new effort to provide information, tools, and guidance.
