ASFL's donations to Dr. Curry also support the development of a dye to make brain surgeries safer and more effective.
A brain tumor is indistinguishable from the tissue of the brain and while doctors certainly know where the tumor is, they do not know the rigid walls of it. The dye that Dr. Curry developed makes the tumor light up in the color of “yellow Gatorade” so that the doctor can make sure he gets as much of the tumor as possible without doing harm to the patient’s brain.
