Why We Walk
Why Do We Walk Ahead for a Brain Tumor Cure?
Because 215,000 people are stricken with brain tumors in America every year. About 45,000 of these individuals suffer primary tumors, which originate in the brain without warning and often without any known cause. An additional 170,000 people suffer metastatic brain tumors, whose source is a cancer elsewhere in the body.
We also Walk Ahead because brain tumors are becoming more common. During the last two decades, the incidence of brain tumors has increased 22 percent overall and 55 percent in people over 65 years of age. Proceeds from Walk Ahead support research and education at the UC Brain Tumor Center.
The Brain Tumor Center at the University of Cincinnati Gardner Neuroscience Institute and the UC Cancer Institute is part of the UC College of Medicine and UC Health. The Center provides innovative and compassionate care for patients with brain tumors while striving to find cures and to discover why these tumors occur.
The Center’s multidisciplinary clinical team employs an array of tumor-fighting treatments and makes new therapies available to patients through carefully managed clinical trials. We invite you to join us on our journey, as we Walk Ahead for a Brain Tumor Cure.
