The Children’s Brain Tumor Family Foundation is a volunteer based 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and funding research for rare and inoperable brain tumors.
The funds we raise support the Children’s Brain Tumor Project at Weill Cornell.
Our foundation was built by families who have been united by tragedy.
SEE OUR STORY
The Children's Brain Tumor Family Foundation is led by a group of families that have been united by the tragic diagnosis of a rare brain tumor, who all have incredible passion and belief in the importance of research being done, and great faith in the work underway at the Children's Brain Tumor Project.
MEET OUR FAMILIES
Despite the amount of brain tumors, and their devastating prognosis, there have only been four (4) FDA approved drugs and one device to treat brain tumors in 30 years.

SUPPORT & RESOURCES
The Children's Brain Tumor Family Foundations strives to provide support to families that are facing the challenge and difficult journey of a diagnosis of a brain tumor. We look to connect people who are undergoing similar treatments or have children of similar ages and situations. We hope to point people to reliable and reputable sources of information and support.
Lastly, we aim to help them understand the research programs underway and trials that may be available to them and we provide the infrastructure and support they need should they wish to direct the funds raised by efforts undertaken locally towards the children's brain tumor project.
