Children's Brain Tumor Foundation Inc
February 27, 2009

I became aware of the Children's Brain Tumor Foundation when I was an adult brain tumor patient undergoing chemotherapy treatment. At the time, I had two very young children. I couldn't imagine what it would be like for a child to manage this horrific disease, much less what it would be like for the rest of a family. It was then that I decided that, should I survive, it would be my obligation to do what I could to both find a cure as well as assist those families dealing with this terrible disease. Working with CBTF in its mission has been extremely rewarding for me as it offers a purpose and a way to give back to a society that to which I now have a deep connection. The organization is laser-focused on both finding a cure as well as helping families cope with diagnosis and/or loss of a child. Nobody should suffer with a brain tumor, and least of all chidren. As pediatric brain tumors are the toughest children's cancer, the world should support the mission of the Children's Brain Tumor.

The Great!

More feedback

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

the opportunity to work with energized and focused individuals.

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

intelligent, confident and caring.

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

finish or nearly finish funding the true baseline building block that would allow researchers a much better chance of finding cures for the multitude of pediatric brain tumors.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
