PLAINSBORO, N.J. (May 12, 2016) –
In recognition of Brain Tumor Awareness month, CURE Media Group
, the nation’s leading consumer digital and print media enterprise focused entirely on patients with cancer, has launched a CURE Connections® brain tumor video series
unique to the needs of patients and loved ones affected by a brain tumor diagnosis.
To help provide patients, families and caregivers with helpful information, the video series
shares important insights from Joon Uhm, MD, an associate professor of neurology and director of neuro-oncology at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, and Jennifer Serventi, RPA-C, CCRP, a neuro-oncology research associate from the University of Rochester Medical Center. Unique perspectives on the management of a brain tumor are further discussed by Dellann Elliott Mydland, founder and president of the advocacy group, EndBrainCancer.org, and Megan Patton, a patient with brain cancer.
More specifically, the brain tumor video series
provides viewers with clinical information, provided by Dr. Uhm and Serventi, regarding strategies for detecting and treating brain tumors such as glioblastoma. Patton discusses her journey as a patient with brain cancer, and Mydland highlights resources available through EndBrainCancer.org and remarks on how the organization advocates for patients.
“If you or someone you know has a brain tumor, it’s important to get the most accurate information possible about how to find the right doctor and what the best options are for treatment and relief of symptoms,” stated CURE Connections series host and highly respected medical correspondent, Dr. Philippa Cheetham.
Mike Hennessy Jr., president of CURE Media Group, added, “CURE Connections recognizes the remarkable breakthroughs occurring in brain tumor research, and our goal is to provide viewers with this educational information. We want to give patients and their loved ones the resources needed to take a proactive role in their care.”
