2019 Central Texas

Central Texas Oncology Nursing Society

Thank you for visiting our team page and helping us to reach our fundraising goal!

Central Texas Oncology Nursing Society is a part of the national Oncology Nursing Society (ONS). The ONS Mission is to promote excellence in oncology nursing and quality cancer care. The society works to fulfill this mission by providing nurses and healthcare professional with access to the highest quality educational programs, cancer-care resources, research opportunities and networks for peer support. The ONS vision is to lead the transformation of cancer care. The society pursues this vision by initiating and actively supporting educational, legislative and public awareness efforts to improve the care of people with cancer.

Our team is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Central Texas on March 31st, 2019. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. 

Head for the Cure works to inspire hope for the community of brain cancer patients, their families, friends, caregivers and other supporters, while celebrating their courage, spirit and energy. Every Head for the Cure event marks a day of celebration where those diagnosed with brain cancer are honored and celebrated by their friends and families, those who have lost their battles are remembered, and we are all inspired to carry on the fight. 

Funds raised by Head for the Cure support the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative, a network of medical centers with the expertise and the desire to participate in state-of-the-art clinical trials investigating new treatments for malignant brain tumors.

Each year, over 79,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor. More than 120 types of brain tumors exist, making effective treatment complicated. Cutting edge research is needed as we continue to make strides in this fight.

Please consider making a donation today to help us reach our goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
