Daines, Markey Bring Awareness to Americans Suffering from Brain Tumors

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senators Steve Daines (R-Mont.) and Edward Markey (D-Mass.) introduced a bipartisan Senate resolution recognizing May 2021 as “Brain Tumor Awareness Month.”

“Too many Montanans and their families struggle with the terrible health implications of brain tumors. We must continue to raise awareness on this important health issue that touches the lives of Montanans and many Americans,” Daines said. 

“Far too many Americans die from debilitating brain tumors every year, and Massachusetts knows all too well the devastating impacts these diseases can have on loved ones and families,” Markey said. “That's why I am proud to introduce this resolution today recognizing May as National Brain Tumor Awareness Month. This resolution will help draw attention to this terrible disease and reaffirm our nation's commitment to bolster research for innovative therapies for brain cancers.”
