Brain Cancer

For some good information on this type of cancer, visit the website for the   Cancer Care 

  • About 23,880 malignant tumors of the brain or spinal cord (13,720 in males and 10,160 in females) will be diagnosed. These numbers would be much higher if benign (non-cancer) tumors were also included.
  • About 16,830 people (9,490 males and 7,340 females) will die from brain and spinal cord tumors.
Overall, the chance that a person will develop a malignant tumor of the brain or spinal cord in his or her lifetime is less than 1%. The risk for men (about 1 in 143) is slightly higher than that for women (about 1 in 185), although certain types of tumors are more common in women.
I have made a miniature awareness ribbon from tiny Delica glass beads – with grey beads in the center – the color for Brain Cancer, bordered in white for the hope that is always there! It measures just about one inch tall, and is suspended on an 18″ silver-dipped chain.
A lovely way to show your support, and wear your colors!  Only $12.00, and the shipping is included!
