Fighting Cancer in Celebration of the Inaugural Glioblastoma Awareness Day

Yesterday, July 17th was officially designated as Glioblastoma Awareness Day #GBMDay, bringing support and awareness to the deadliest form of brain cancer Glioblastoma(GBM). NFCR and Dr. Sujuan Ba was proud to join with other amazing organizations leading the fight against cancer and members of U.S. congress, to celebrate and advocate for this awful disease.

We’d like to send a huge thank you to U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham and co-sponsors Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senators Elizabeth Warren, Kyrsten Sinema, Martha McSally, and Ed Markey for leading the charge to raise awareness about through GBMDay.
