 “Heroes of Hope” Grey Ribbon Crusade ™ Promotes National Unification in the Fight Against Brain Tumors


Ashburn, VA.Virginia, New York, Michigan, Florida, Illinois, Alabama, and Ohio are the first seven states represented in the Heroes of Hope Grey Ribbon Crusade, an initiative that seeks to create dynamic action in the drive for funding of brain tumor research through a synergistic approach. The program invites the general public and those in the brain tumor community to join the Grey Ribbon Crusade and become part of a united force against brain tumors. The goal is to increase visibility through a strong national brand allowing the utilization of a combined scale of accomplishments and resources while preserving individual and organizational goals, without additional layers of financial commitment. 


The Heroes of Hope are those eager to be a part of a united force against brain tumors. This can be an individual, the general public, business entity, or an existing charitable organization. Simply visit and sign up to unite and fight for a cure against brain tumors. There is no fee and everyone who joins will receive a grey ribbon to wear in an effort to spread awareness of the cause.


The Grey Ribbon Crusade came about after three existing charitable organizations dedicated to brain tumor research began assisting each other in distinct areas of each other’s missions, while still continuing in the specific direction of their own goals. Realizing that unification carried many benefits toward finding a cure for brain tumors, they launched the “Heroes of Hope” Grey Ribbon Crusade. 


“There are so many great, small foundations, doing their part in the fight against brain tumors, but if we combine our efforts at the same time we are maintaining our individual goals, we can not only bring brain tumor awareness to the forefront of the public’s mind, but create a synergy that can really impact funding for this very important cause.” Said Lisa Kaminsky-Millar, founder of the Brad Kaminsky Foundation for Brain Tumor Research, named after her brother, Brad Kaminsky, an Assistant District Attorney in Bucks County, PA who passed away from a glioblastoma multiforme brain tumor at the age of 29.


Brain tumors are the leading cause of solid tumor death in children

Brain tumors are the 2nd leading cause of cancer death in men under the age of 39 and the 5th leading cause of cancer death in women under the age of 39.

20% of cancers will spread to the brain.
