September: the start of a new school year and the beginning of Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month. To kick off the month, the Chappaqua, NY community creates yet another role model in support of the pediatric cancer agenda by honoring A Kids’ Brain Tumor Cure at two local screenings of “SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in the Digital Age”. This highly acclaimed documentary focuses on one of the biggest parenting issues of our modern time: the impact of digital technology on our children. The film probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including the director’s own, and depicts messy struggles, over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through surprising insights from authors and brain scientists, solutions emerge on how we can empower our kids to best navigate the digital world.  AKBTC is thrilled to be a part of this timely event which focuses on ensuring that our children have healthy brains, not just free of tumors but free of digital ‘clutter’ that can impact otherwise healthy, developing brains.

Purchase your tickets today for either the September 7th or the September 8th show. Our deepest gratitude to the “Chappaqua Moms” online community and Breezemont Day Camp for sponsoring this important event, donating a portion of all ticket sales to AKBTC and for joining us in our mission to find less toxic, more effective treatments and a cure for pediatric brain cancer.
