CBTF Enters Its 25th Year of Service
Children's Brain Tumor Foundation began its 25th year of service to children, families and survivors nationwide with a small celebration at its October board meeting.
The theme of this year's anniversary, A Bridge to Hope, conveys our belief that the organization helps build with the children, families and survivors we serve a bridge that leads to a more hopeful place with services and research funding intended to improve the quality-of-life and long-term outlook of children afflicted by brain and spinal cord tumors, their families and survivors.
Our goal remains the same as always; to serve the 4150 children newly diagnosed each year with this disease, 25,000 survivors living with the disease and its long-term affects and bereaved families. We are the only organization working nationwide in support of these families through our continuum of care services, and we are the founding funder of the Children's Brain Tumor Tissue Consortium, which we believe is the best hope for a cure for this disease.
Thanks to our board members, volunteers and supporters throughout the years for making this achievement possible. We look forward, with your continued support, to sustaining our fight against the deadliest childhood cancer.
