Greg’s Mission Promotes Brain Cancer Awareness and Support with Fifth Season Financial
Brain cancer is a disease of the brain in which cancer cells (malignant) arise in brain tissue and survival rates depend on many factors. This year, an estimated 23,380 adults (12,820 men and 10,560 women) in the United States will be diagnosed with primary cancerous tumors of the brain and spinal cord. It is estimated that 14,320 adults (8,090 men and 6,230 women) will die from this disease this year.
Greg Cantwell, Founder of Greg’s Mission, is a brain cancer survivor himself, which was the inspiration for starting his non-profit in 2012. Fifth Season Financial has partnered with Greg’s Mission to provide one-on-one support for patients, families, and caregivers who are suffering from multiple forms of brain cancer. To date, Greg’s Mission has helped over 1,000 brain cancer patients through various forms of support, education and advice. He continues to educate the public about his services through various means.
Greg is helping to spread the word about brain cancer and how Greg’s Mission can help patients, survivors and their families. Greg’s Mission will be attending 12 minor league baseball games in the midwest (IA, IN, KY & OH), where he will reach approximately 5000-8000 people that attend each game with his message about brain cancer support.
During the game, a public service announcement is made about the non-profit organization, Greg’s Mission. There is a table set up next to the entrance of the ballpark, giving everyone the chance to learn more about how Greg’s Mission offers support to patients and how Fifth Season Financial can offer a form of financial support to those brain cancer patients who may qualify.
It’s important for brain cancer patients to be able to focus on their families and health and not worry about financial stress that may result from the expenses of medical care for cancer. Greg has recognized the value of bringing awareness to patients that may not realize Fifth Season Financial can be a source of financial relief. He continues to bring awareness of brain cancer through Greg’s Mission and Fifth Season Financial to everyone who stops by to learn more.
