Brain Tumor Awareness Month on May, 2019: Why isn't there a prostate cancer awareness month? Or a lungbrain cancer awareness month?
May, 2019 is Brain Tumor Awareness Month 2019. Brain Tumors Targeting Brain Tumors With Our Advanced Treatments & Technology.
You are my new best friend.....lol....seriously though.
I too wonder why awareness is not raised for all types of cancer, regardless of where they originate. I don't wish harm to anyone either, but the last time Iooked, you needed your brain to live, but you could live without your breasts (my m-i-l, mother and others have had it and lived a wonderful life after their mastectomies).
I have brain cancer and yet all I ever hear about is how this is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so gee, in Philly, let's turn all the lights in buildings downtown PINK at night, not to mention all 3 bridges. The Eagles are wearing pink during their games (football players wearing pink is a sight).
Where's the grey for Brain Tumors and Brain Cancer? Where are all the other colors? Why aren't they being shown? Because no one else can get theirs noticed because of all the press about Breast Cancer, that's why.

I think my mum has a brain tumour?
Sounds like maybe epilepsy. If she had a brain tumor 6 years ago, she would be dead by now, esp if her seizures started that long ago.
In no fashion does it resemble a stroke Aria....
