Mission: As its mission, the Reflections Of Grace Foundation is dedicated to:
-- Providing financial, emotional, and educational support for the families of children affected by pediatric brain cancer.
-- Raising awareness of all types of pediatric brain tumors, with a particular focus on Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), sometimes known as Brainstem Glioma.
-- Joining with other like-minded organizations in educating, aiding and funding the search for a cure for DIPG and other forms of pediatric brain cancer, in the hope of curing all cancers.
Target demographics: children throughout the United States suffering from pediatric brain cancer
Geographic areas served: the greater Pittsburgh area
Programs: Family grant program -- Grants of up to $2000 per family per year to assist with expenses incurred in caring for a child suffering from pediatric brain cancer.
Research support program -- Grants made along with like-minded organizations to support research in treating and curing pediatric brain cancer.
What an amazing organization that is truly making a difference in the lives of children with brain cancer. The volunteers dedicated to this nonprofit are to be commended for their tremendous efforts, which have not gone unnoticed.
Donating to this cause is something that my husband and I feel passionately about, as the poor prognosis and lack of treatment options that these children are given when diagnosed with a tumor like DIPG is unacceptable.
Unlike larger cancer foundations, Reflections Of Grace is very transparent with their donors about where the money goes and how the contributions are used.
