Brain Tumor Foundation for Children

Brain Tumor Foundation

Established in 1983 in Atlanta, Georgia, the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children was the first nonprofit organization in the United States to focus on the issue of pediatric brain tumor disease.  The mission of the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children is to provide financial assistance, social support, and information for families of children with brain and spinal cord tumors; fund research projects that improve treatment options and search for a cure; and raise public awareness of the disease and advocate on behalf of children who are affected. 

The Foundation’s generous financial assistance program – the Butterfly Fund - assists families of children treated for brain and spinal cord tumors in eight southeastern states (AL, FL, GA, KY, LA, MS, SC, and TN).  Additionally, the Foundation funds research projects to improve treatment options and search for a cure.
