Hidden Under Our Hats to visit Oregon - October 4-14, 2004

Portland, Oregon
Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center
and Legacy Emanuel Hospital

Hidden Under Our Hats - a National Brain Tumor Awareness Project presented by the Brain Tumor Action Network and Legacy Health System Cancer Services

The public is invited to visit Hidden Under Our Hats, on display in Portland, Oregon in October. Hats donated by members of the brain tumor community are displayed in a beautiful and moving exhibit celebrating the lives of brain tumor survivors, memorializing our brain tumor angels, and raising awareness for the plight of brain tumor patients and their loved ones.

This powerful event was originally started in 2002 by a local woman, a mother from Sumner, Washington who had recently lost her four-year-old daughter to a brain tumor. The project was taken on this year by two Floridians after each lost their spouse to a brain tumor. The display appears in Washington D.C. each May during Brain Tumor Action Week, then becoming a traveling exhibit, carrying the message of brain tumor awareness across the land.

For more information about the Portland exhibit, contact Charlyn Wilson, Legacy Cancer Services, at cwilson@lhs.org.

To donate a hat: On the outside of your hats, please write your name, age at diagnosis, type of brain tumor, date of diagnosis, and the date of death for those who have passed. If you attend a brain tumor support group, or know of other brain tumor patients who are still fighting or who have passed, please ask for their hats too. Send hats to the following address: Brain Tumor Action Network, c/o EPTA, 5741 Gall Boulevard, Zephyrhills, FL 33542 (813) 748-4560.

Bring the Hats to your home town! We encourage you to contact your local treatment center or another proper venue to bring the Hats Exhibit to your area. For further details please email: kmcalvanah@BTAN.org

This is a POWERFUL exhibit. So far we have more than a thousand hats. HELP us to make a difference through public awareness. We WILL find a cure!
