Zombies for Brain Cancer: steal this graphic and share it with friends
Zombies for Brain Cancer

I made this graphic a few weeks ago after attending the National Brain Tumor Society’s annual summit. I was inspired and excited about increasing brain tumor awareness and getting more people to take action.

But honestly, if you don’t know me or one of the other 650,000+ people in the United States living with a primary brain tumor, why would you care? What would motivate you to sign on to a letter to Congress in support of brain tumor research?

Somewhere in my warped brain I concluded zombies were the answer.

TV shows like “The Walking Dead” have educated us on what zombies want: human flesh, and more specifically, brains.


I can’t count the number of zombie-themed Internet memes that have crossed my path over the past year. Why not create my own?

If we have to live with a brain tumor why not capitalize on one of pop-culture’s most iconic undead anti-heroes by raising brain tumor awareness with zombies? People love zombies, and no one wants to see them go hungry.

Where does this link go?

The link bit.ly/feedazombie will take you to page where you can sign on to the National Brain Tumor Society’s letter to Congress in support of continued funding for the National Institutes of Health and the National Cancer Institute.

If you are wary of Bit.ly generated links, you can also use the longer, official link at https://secure2.convio.net/bts/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=121&JServSessionIdr004=5mobudr0p2.app213b:

As of this post more than 1,000 people have signed on to this letter, and we hope to gain more support among brain tumor patients, caregivers, families, friends and zombie lovers everywhere.
