Raise Your Voice Brain Cancer Information Program

Voices Against Brain Cancer is proud to introduce the Raise Your Voice Program. (RYVP)

This manual is filled with helpful, up-to-date information on brain cancer covering vast areas from diagnosis to treatment to support. This manual was written by VABC with consultation from Dr. Steven Rosenfeld, Chief of Neuro-Oncology at Columbia University’s Brain Tumor Center and member of VABC’s Medical Advisory Board.

“I felt a need to volunteer for a group committed to funding research to cure brain cancer and help those afflicted with it. My oncologist, Dr. Rosenfeld, recommended VABC. I reviewed the binder of information that VABC prepared, and was quite impressed. So I volunteered and met some wonderful folks on the Board. I was honored when I was asked to join the Board, and look forward to the continued progress of this great program.”
-Mario DiNatale, Former VABC Board Member
Passed away from brain cancer in 2009
