2023 Photo Contest Winner


Congratulations to Andrea Stoll for submitting the winning photo, “Brave Ben.” Andrea has won a free registration to the 2024 Annual Conference in Salt Lake City, UT.

Photo Caption: “This is Ben he is 29 years old. He has had 2 brain tumor resections in 18 months. Ben never caved to the pain, the fear, or the anger that comes with a brain tumor diagnosis. He shows up every month to brain tumor support group to cheer others on. He is the guy who is always going to be there to help others. He is the guy who simply makes others better with just a smile. The most recent MRI shows new growth on the opposite side of his brain. He is presently undergoing chemo and radiation. He is the true spirit of neuroscience. He is my hero!”
