This “poster” is a nice reminder that May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month. It also serves as a reminder of sorts that brain tumors are often referred to as the “forgotten cancer” or the “orphan cancer.”
I think that we may have been spoiled by the lofty numbers accomplished toward the end of 2013: February totals appears to be off from January. I use “appears” because, more so than is typically the case, the totals we get from third party apps have informational gaps. I know that the totals miss at least 5 million impacts (deliveries to people’s timelines) and perhaps a good many more. So for February, we will have to rely on the best information available coupled with what I hope is a rational guess on my part. So with a huge caveat about accuracy, February looks like this:
Completely accurate or not, 3,700 participants is quite significant – whether a tweet or a re-tweet each one of those people knowingly took an action to further brain tumor awareness. Now that is something to build on!
