MUSC to host Kickball Tourney to benefit Brain Tumor Action Month

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON, SC -

To date, there are No Cures for malignant brain tumors. The MUSC Brain & Spine Tumor Program aims to change that fact: May is nationally recognized as Brain Tumor Awareness Month.

In honor of Brain Tumor Awareness Month, the MUSC Brain & Spine Tumor Program takes ACTION to raise awareness in our local community about brain tumors and the need for research funding by hosting several events throughout the month - this is why we call our awareness campaign: MUSC Brain Tumor Action Month!

All funds raised through MUSC Brain Tumor Action Month events and activities will go directly to the MUSC Foundation brain tumor research fund, a 501c3 charity. These funds ensure that MUSC can continue to bring the most innovative and promising treatments to its patients through participation in world-class clinical trials and research that improves the lives of those with central nervous system tumors.

One of our many events for MUSC Brain Tumor Action Month is our Kickball Tournament to Kick Brain Cancer!
