CBTF’s Mission

The Children's Brain Tumor Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 1988 by dedicated parents, physicians and friends. Our mission is: 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.

We keep you informed about brain and spinal tumors

Knowledge is critical for families to access expert care and ensure quality of life. Our free publication A Resource Guide for Parents of Children with Brain and Spinal Cord Tumors is now in its fifth edition. This resource is full of practical information to sort through the complexities of medical procedures, interruptions to school and social life, and uncertainty about the future. CBTF also co-sponsors conferences to provide families, survivors, and healthcare professionals the latest research, treatments, and strategies for moving forward.

We provide support and advocacy to those affected by brain and spinal tumors

Support means having someone alongside you offering renewal and strength. When information and community resources are shared, families and young survivors find ways of adapting and then improving their lives. CBTF offers a toll-free support line. By dialing 866-228-4673, you will be connected to trained pediatric neuro-oncology social workers. Programs like CBTF's Family 2 Family Network allow families to share their experiences with other families experiencing similar dilemmas. Parents become stronger advocates for their children, and survivors become stronger advocates for themselves.
