Gillian Anderson is supporting "Wear A Hat Day", an event meant to bring awareness to the devastating effects of brain tumors. So tomorrow, March, 30th, Gillian and many others will be donning hats.
The day is sponsored by Brain Tumour Research, an organization working to find better treatments and cures for brain tumors. To find out more about how you can help, visit their website here.
The cause is close to Gillian's heart, for as many of you know, Gillian's younger brother Aaron passed away due to a brain tumor last September.
In her words, "Brain Tumours kill more children and people under 40 than any other form of cancer and yet research into this devastating disease is seriously underfunded. At best, Research = Cure. At worst, improved outcomes for patients. We need to put more money into research and that is why I’m supporting Brain Tumour Research and their Wear A Hat Day."
