Target demographics: Families of children aged birth through 21 years in the southeast who have brain and spinal cord tumors.

Geographic areas served: Southeast

Programs: The Brain Tumor Foundation for Children provides a financial assistance program (Butterfly Fund) for the families of children treated for the disease at certain hospitals in eight southeastern states (GA, FL, LA, MS, AL, KY, SC, TN); it provides information and education for families; it provides hands-on support to families (mostly in the state of Georgia); it supports research for a cure.

Mission:
The mission of the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children is to provide financial assistance, social support, and information for families of children with brain and spinal cord tumors; fund research projects that improve treatment options and search for a cure; and raise public awareness of the disease and advocate on behalf of children who are affected.
Results:
In the 2012 fiscal year (7/1/11 – 6/30/12), we provided $360,000 in emergency financial assistance for 300 families in the southeast through our Butterfly Fund. Since being established in 2000, this one program has provided over $1.8 million in assistance for hundreds of families – helping with items that include rent and utilities, car payments and repairs, gasoline, treatment-related travel expenses, and much more. We will continue to “Help Families Cope,” as long as needed through this and other programs that are described on our website.
