2018 Ependymoma Awareness Day Butterfly Release

The CERN Foundation held a butterfly release as part of Ependymoma Awareness Day on Sunday, May 6, 2018 in Washington, DC.

2018 EAD Video
Hundreds of butterflies were released to honor loved ones with ependymoma, caregivers, and to support ependymoma research. The delicate and beautiful butterfly was chosen to represent the spirit of the ependymoma community as a symbol of hope through change. 
The butterfly release was photographed and videotaped so that supporters around the world can participate and share in this moving event! 
Our team is dedicated to improving the lives of children and adults worldwide diagnosed with ependymoma. 
The CERN Foundation would like to thank all of you that have participated in this moving and unique event. CERN is especially grateful to the National Brain Tumor Society for allowing us to hold the butterfly release during their Head to the Hill event. Your efforts and donations will help us immensely in creating awareness about this rare disease, and help expand our efforts to improve the care and outcome of people with ependymoma.
Ependymoma Awareness Outreach
On a local level, many chose to participate in activities to create awareness about ependymoma where they live.
Please feel free to share your experiences with us and submit information and pictures of your Awareness Day activities so that we can feature them on our website, giving inspiration and direction to others as they get involved in Ependymoma Awareness Day!
