We loan because...
We lend to bring awareness to an important cause.

There are over 120 different types of brain tumors, which make effective treatment complicated. They can be malignant or non-malignant (benign), and in either case, can be just as injurious or life threatening.

At this time, brain tumor research is underfunded and the public remains unaware of the magnitude of this disease. The cure rate for most brain tumors is significantly lower than that for many other types of cancer.

The gray ribbon is used to signify support for awareness and a cure for brain cancer. The gray colour exemplifies the wonderful gray matter of our remarkable brains.

About us
The American Brain Tumor Association notes more knowledge about brain tumors has been gained in the last ten years than in the past hundred years. The ABTA has received the highest ratings and recognitions from the nation's leading charity watchdog organizations, and is worthy of support.
The logo and the info on types of brain tumors are from the Setzer's site BrainTumorLife.com.
Team supporters have survived brain tumors or have close relatives and friends who have dealt with brain tumors. Some of the fondly celebrated: Warren Kibbie 1916-1980 (father), William B. (1922-2002), Jane Pratt Mitchell (cousin deceased), Colleen (survived), Phillip S. (still fighting), Sam (taken too young, older and wiser than his years).
