      Please consider coming if your state is not represented and, even if it is,
      joining the ranks of those who have registered from your state. You can also
      join THE Brain Trust team for the 5K Run/Walk/Stroll to raise funds for brain
      tumor research Sunday morning.
      Thanks Cindi
      Dear Friends:
      There is 15 days left to register to attend Brain Tumor Action Week in DC the
      first week of May. The states that have NOT registered are as follows:

      Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Main,
      Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, South Dakota,
      Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming.

      The good news is that we currently have 29 states registered to speak with
      their senators/congressmen/women. On April 15th the North American Brain Tumor
      Coalition will be holding an education teleconference advising individuals of
      the current political issues facing the brain tumor community. This
      teleconference is open to the public. More information will be posted on
      www.nabraintumor.org next week. If you are unable to travel to DC, you can still make
      appointments w/your representatives locally. This is why the teleconference is so
      crucial, as it will better enable you to speak intelligently of the issues
      facing our brain tumor community.

      Lets strive to have more states represented. If not in DC, then at home
      locally. If you do attend BTAW in DC, we are planning a welcoming reception,
      where you will receive a copy of the Faces of Brain Tumors and NABTC position
      papers. You will be able to make new friends, and see old ones again. Everyone
      can be an advocate, for those new to it there will be experienced advocates
      there to take you under their wing and "show you the ropes". The Hidden Under
      Our Hats National Brain Tumor Awareness Traveling Exhibit will be on display at
      Upper Senate Park. To learn more about the Exhibit, or if you wish to send a
      hat representing yourself as a brain tumor survivor, or someone that you love
      that may still be fighting or has passed from the disease, please visit;
      www.btan.org . On Monday evening, there will also be a Vigil celebrating the lives
      of those fighting and remembering those that passed. The Vigil will take
      place at the hat location.

      The North American Brain Tumor Coalition (NABTC) will soon have a Brain Tumor
      Action Week Guide on line for you to down-load. The guide will give you
      ideas of how you can make a difference nationally and locally.

      To learn more about Brain Tumor Action Week and to register to attend the
      events scheduled in Washington DC, please visit www.nabraintumor.org

      Together we can make a difference,
