Brain Tumor Community Loses Leader, Dennis Roth

We are deeply saddened to hear about the sudden and tragic passing of Dennis Roth, Chair of the Brain Tumor Society's Board of Directors, on Sunday May 6, 2007. Dennis was a committed, compassionate and respected leader and the impact of his work was felt throughout the brain tumor community. Dennis and his wife Arlene worked tirelessly to change outcomes for patients and held a special place in their hearts for families affected by pediatric brain tumors.

On Sunday morning, Dennis was in Washington, D.C. celebrating the 10th Annual Race for Hope DC. He spoke about his vision for the future of brain tumor research and encouraged continued collaboration to reach our common goals.

Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure was honored to partner with the Brain Tumor Society for this event. Our deepest condolences go out to Dennis' family and loved ones, the Brain Tumor Society and all of those who Dennis touched over the years.

— Kate Carr, President and CEO, Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure
