The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation works to eliminate the challenges of childhood brain tumors. As the world's largest nonprofit solely dedicated to the pediatric brain tumor community, our mission is to care for and 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 the deadliest 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, support programs and engagement activities. These include college scholarships for brain tumor survivors, a toolkit for newly diagnosed families, brain tumor family camps and peer mentoring. Get resources for your family. >>
