Through their efforts over the last 2 decades the life expectancy for a child with a brain tumor has increased significantly. Before the PBTFUS started funding research a brain tumor was essentially a death sentence for a child. Now there is hope with many of them going into remission and going on with a normal life. I have met several of these children and they are truly inspirational.
As long as I'm able to raise money, continue working in my own business, and ride I'll be showing up at the Baltimore/Washington annual ride -rain or shine.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
meeting several of the children (as well as their parents) that the PBTFUS has had a positive effect upon.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
try to increase the general public's awareness of them.

How likely is it that you would recommend that a friend donate to this group?
How likely are you to donate to this group again?
What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?
I learned of them by chance while attending a motorcycle rally in Asheville, TN several years ago.
Why did you make your donation at this time?
I'm hooked. I've only missed one or two of the annual rides since I became aware of this fine organization.
What would you tell others about this organization?
It is a worthy cause and if you have children consider donating so someone else's child or your own may one day benefti from their good work. Heck, I don't even have any kids, but many of my siblings, friends, and clients do!
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
