Each year, thousands of people are diagnosed with brain tumors. The National Brain Tumor Society is dedicated to raising awareness and funding to help find a cure for brain cancer.
The Sacramento Brain Freeze event raises money for brain tumor research . The event also gives people a chance to honor those affected and remember loved ones who have passed due to a brain tumor. The funds raised benefit the National Brain Tumor Society.
