2009 Courage Award Recipients

What can a voice do? It can soothe, enrage, laugh and heal. It can end wars with its meditative silence or it can be so loud that it can make the earth shake. We plan on using our voices at VABC to ultimately find a cure for brain cancer. How do you want to use your voice? If you would like to post a story or a letter about your own experience with brain cancer, please click here.
