Each year over 210,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor – that’s over 500 people every day. On Sunday, May 20th , join 500 people affected by brain tumors, their friends, families and Country 102.5's Carolyn Kruse for the Boston Brain Tumor Ride. Riders will cycle 10, 25 or 50 miles through Boston's scenic western suburbs to raise awareness and vital funds to support the programs of the National Brain Tumor Society.  Click here to make a donation.  

Brain tumors are the second leading cause of cancer death in children under age 20. Only one out of three adults diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor today will be alive in five years. More so than any other cancer, a brain tumor can have life-altering psychological, cognitive, behavioral, and physical effects. Despite these facts, brain tumor research remains underfunded. National Brain Tumor Society works to meet the vast needs of the brain tumor community, and funds cutting-edge research that accelerates the discovery of new therapies to effectively treat brain tumors and improve quality of life.
