The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation works to eliminate the challenges of childhood brain tumors. As the world’s largest nonprofit source of funding for pediatric brain tumor research, our mission is to cure the kids.
To accomplish our mission, we aim to:
- Fund research to find the cause of and cure for pediatric brain tumors
- Increase public awareness about the severity and prevalence of one of the deadliest forms of childhood cancer
- Aid in the early detection and treatment of this disease
- Provide educational and emotional support for patients and families
The research we fund has paved the way for more focused efforts to understand the cellular and molecular biology of childhood brain tumors. This has opened avenues for the discovery of new diagnostic and treatment approaches. Learn more about our research funding. >>
We also extend a hand to families with educational materials and support programs, including college scholarships for brain tumor survivors. Get resources for your family. >>
