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