I am sure that brain tumor research can be elevated greatly by the efforts of the public. It's in great part because of them that medical research is continually done since their donations help it along. What about the activity they engage in whenever they take it upon themselves to become involved in events open to the public? These are actions which are meant to help bring awareness to cancer and I believe that it's worth noting the greater names which have helped on the matter, too.
It seems like there has been, at least, one case of a celebrity that has made news recently. Rona, the sister of Olivia Newton-John, passed away because of brain cancer in April. However, you may be surprised to know that this wasn't Rona's first bout with this type of condition. Twenty years or so ago, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Nonetheless, it seemed like she remained positive throughout it all, surrounding herself with only those that she loved and cared about.
Organizations along the lines of Voices Against Brain Cancer have been able to host a number of events, the Sounding Off For A Cure concert being the latest. There will be a number of guests honored at the event and one that seemed to stick out to me that I don't hear many people talking about is Matt Cappotelli. While he may not be a name that everyone will know about, I'm sure that those who are invested in brain tumor research can stand to learn about him.
World Wrestling Entertainment signed Cappotelli on and he was with the company within the time span of 2005 until 2009. While he worked with the company for four years, he wasn't able to wrestle on TV last the developmental deal that he had. He made the announcement that he had a cancerous tumor given the name of grade 2/3 astrocytoma. It required surgery and Cappotelli was fortunate in that it was successful, despite the fact that he has not actively performed in a big promotion since that time.
When it comes to brain tumor research, I think that there a number of big names worth talking about. Newton-John is clearly going to have a greater audience because it is one that the general public is going to be familiar with. This is especially true compared to others names like Cappotelli, which seems to be recognized by only a specific audience. Regardless, I cannot deny the fact that both names – along with a slew of others – seem to be great when it comes to extending levels of awareness outward.
