My CBTF Family

By Haley Askew
Friday, March 29, 2013

As I write this I truly can’t believe this is my last day at CBTF.  After moving to New York City 2 years ago I was blessed to find this job opportunity.  While I was excited to accept my first real job in the big apple I had no idea how much I would enjoy it.  I’m not trying to make it sound easy.  There were plenty of trying times…wondering if...

Giving Tuesday

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Giving Tuesday comes on the heels of Black Friday and Cyber Monday and asks that each of us take a moment during the holiday season to give to the charity of our choice. It's a simple idea and a good one, for it's easy to forget, in the haste of the holiday season, that helping those who most need our help is a wonderful gift to them and to ourselves.

Friday, August 17, 2012

In five and a half weeks will be holding our first ever Children’s Walk Against Brain Tumors and Brain Cancer.  When our ED first told me about this event I was very apprehensive.  One of my favorite events, the Danny Jegle Open is the Monday before the walk.  The Big Apple Circus event, CBTF’s longest running fundraiser is about a month after the walk.  I just...

My Experience at CBTF

By Amanda Singerman
Tuesday, June 5, 2012

As I near the end of my internship at the Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation, I am consumed with memories of my time at CBTF and hope that I have helped the organization in some way work towards their goal of improving the treatment and life style for children who have been diagnosed with brain or spinal cord tumors, as well as their families, who have to deal with such a heart wrenching...

BEING ACTIVE AND PROACTIVE IN CANCER AWARENESS

By Kayla Giacin
Friday, March 30, 2012

Although research and advocacy still has a long way to go when it comes to pediatric cancers and brain tumors, it has definitely come a long way over the past 20 years.  I can visibly see how approaches towards cancers and tumors are changing as time changes with them.  It seems like we are more willing and eager to treat survivorship, rather than just the initial diagnosis, as we learn...

AN INSPIRATIONAL VISIT FROM HADLEY!

By CBTF Staff
Friday, February 24, 2012

On Tuesday, the CBTF staff had the pleasure of meeting 9 year old Hadley and her father Tim McLean.  In April of 2011 Hadley began complaining of headaches and nausea.  Her parents instinctively knew something wasn’t right and demanded an MRI.  She was then diagnosed with a medulloblastoma.  The closest children’s hospital is Dana Farber in Boston, which is about...

Holiday Shopping Guide

By Haley Askew
Monday, November 28, 2011

I am 26 and my younger sister is 24, but miraculously Santa still visits our home every year.  So we each put together a Christmas list (due on Thanksgiving) that my mom makes sure gets to the North Pole.  My sister is one of the most caring and selfless people I know.  Her Christmas list was short but inspiring.  She asked for clean water and sterile childbirth kits for...
