Get Your Head in the Game is the movement we’ve all been looking for… a way we can spread awareness about a malady invading our lives–and heads.
In the past I’ve guiltily written about my jealousy of breast cancer campaigns, and also dreamed about what our prognoses would be like if as much funding, research and awareness was put into the world of brain tumors.
And now is our chance to join a movement that will affect our lives and the lives of people we care about.
I’d like to say I know a thing or two about brain tumors (because I’m a hungry consumer of neurological literature), but Get Your Head in the Game has already educated me about a few things I didn’t know.
Only one out of every three adults diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor will be alive five years from now.
That is not OK!
The GYHITG movement is a partner of the National Brain Tumor Society and I met their folks at the Bay Area Brain Tumor Walk. They are super cool and passionate about this movement. I bought one of their T-shirts (see photo above, I’m on the left) and have started wearing the GYHITG pin around town.
Actually–this is funny–I wore the shirt to a Giants vs. Rockies game last weekend after the brain tumor walk, and Giants fans LOVED it (orange and black–SF Giants, represent!).
I’m excited to see what they do next. Check our their website, fan their Facebook page, and get your head in the game too.
