This national non-profit organization was founded in 1988 by a group of dedicated parents, physicians and friends to improve the treatment, quality of life and the long-term outlook for children with brain and spinal cord tumors through research, support, education, and advocacy to families and survivors. Over four million dollars have been given out for cutting edge research projects at leading medical institutions across the country. Support services include the Parent-to-Parent Network, telephone support groups, educational teleconferences and referrals to social services.
