We Can Turn This Hope Into A Cure
Brain Tumors Fast Facts
More than 100 different types of tumors can affect the brain or the central nervous system. A malignant primary brain tumor is a rare form of cancer, accounting for just over 1% of all new cases of cancer annually in the United States.
Almost 80,000 new primary brain tumor cases are diagnosed each year. Of those, most (more than 50,000) are non-malignant tumors.
Brain tumors in children typically differ from those in adults, and brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer deaths in patients 18 years old or younger. The average age of patients diagnosed with a brain tumor is 59.

Brain Tumor Caregiver Tips
Caring for someone with a brain tumor can be even more challenging than the already high demands of caring for someone with any other type of serious, progressive illness.
Along with the physical changes that make other cancers and serious illnesses so physically and emotionally exhausting to deal with, brain tumors also often produce psychological and cognitive changes in the patient that can threaten the caregiver’s well-being, too.
