We found out about Children's Brain Tumor foundation by the social worker at the hospital. My son had surgery for brain cancer in 2011 and we were told his treatment would last a year. I left my job to be home to care for him. I've always worked and we were shocked and devastated and wondering how out family could ever get through this. The loss of my income put a lot of pressure on my husband financially. But children's brain tumor foundation helped us make our car payments so we had one less worry. The diagnosis of a brain tumor is financially deviating to most families. On top of a parent frequently losing a job because of this diagnosis you have many many more expenses than in every day life. Brain Tumor Foundation was a huge support for our family!

The Children's Brain Tumor Foundation has given hope and support to families such as ours. Our son was diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of 14. Through this Foundation we were able to connect with other families and given useful information. With their emphasis on funding research, the Foundation fills the void left by Federal cutbacks and focuses on research specifically geared to Pediatric Brain Tumors. This gives hope to families that the future may hold better treatments for these devestating illnesses.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

thankful families, new treatment focuses, new programs for survivors of brain tumors

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

meeting people with the same needs and commitment to the same goals- better survival rates and quality of life for children with or survivors of brain tumors

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

compassionate, responsive, informed

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

fund more research, treat more families to summer camp and other recreational activities
