Voices Against Brain Cancer's website states that they are a 4 star charity on Charity Navigator. They aren't even listed on Charity Navigator. My friend and I run an Etsy shop with brain cancer awareness shirts. We donate the proceeds to the American Brain Tumor Association. Voices Against Brain Cancer shares our designs on Facebook without our permission and without giving us credit for the design. We have contacted them regarding this and they did not respond to our messages.

My son lost his father to brain cancer (GBM4) in March 2011, he was diagnosed in March 2010. He was only 8 years old at the time and saw his Dad suffer for one full year, it was incredibly hard for him and so hard to watch as a parent. We found VABC in the Summer of 2011, my son was driven to do something to make a difference and my research led me to VABC. They were so kind with my son and really made him feel part of the organization. We formed a team, raised a good amount of money and my son was given the Caregiver Award at the 2011 walk. This experience helped him to heal in many ways. Darren Port and his team at Powered By Professionals are wonderful, caring people that are all doing fantastic work and helping countless people. We plan on being involved indefinitely and helping as many people as we can. My son often tells me that he hopes that we are helping to stop brain cancer so another kid will not lose his parent. VABC is helping to make this a reality!

I came across the "Voices against Brain Cancer" site back in 2010 ,a few months after losing my father from complications of Glioblastoma Multiforme/ stage 4.This site for me was a lifesaver!!..It really helped me during my grievance period.For once I felt like I was not alone in this..There were actually other people who were/are going through the same thing I was going through .Reading and looking at photos of people who shared similar stories on this site was so so Helpful to me, and I'm sure to others as well.Brain Cancer is such a Terrible and Unforgiving Disease and truthfully so unheard of.When my father was diagnosed ,he was only given 6 months or less to live.Imagine when we got the news?!? .Here's this strong man who hardly ever caught a cold to die from a terminal disease?.OMG!..it was like getting hit with a ton of bricks.If anyone told me my Father would eventually die from from Diabetes ,which runs through our family ,then I'd be more accepting of it,BUT..Brain Cancer?..what was that? We need to have more Brain Cancer Awareness in hopes that one day ,we find a cure for this monster......May God Bless and give strength to all the families and people who are going through this terrible disease at these moments..Never give up,You are not Alone! Keep the Faith
