  • children with brain tumorsBy Life Quotes, Inc.

    A group of Massachusetts mothers whose daughters suffer from brain tumors have banded together to raise money for cancer research, according to a report from USA Today.

    The national newspaper says that Renee Corning, Alice Williams, and Sarah Hamilton raised $250,000 for the researchers at the Dana Farber Cancer Center in 2009 alone, without corporate sponsorship or deep-pocketed backers of any kind. The three simply raise money in small amounts from their friends and family members.

    Sarah Hamilton, whose nine-year-old daughter Caroline, told USA Today that “a lot of parents are living on the presumption that the world has progressed in treatment for our daughters. Unfortunately, current treatment methods are based on research that dates back to the 1980s, before cellphones even existed! We couldn’t sit and wait for someone to do something.”

    Regulating known harmful lifestyle factors and keeping up with a regular schedule of screenings can help catch tumors early and allow consumers to continue to enjoy low health and life insurance rates.
