if the survival rate is so high, why create a foundation?

Here’s WHY

Just because most benign brain tumors aren’t LIFE THREATENING, it does NOT mean they aren’t LIFE CHANGING.

Brain tumors can have lasting and life-altering physical, cognitive and psychological impacts on a patient’s life.

There are only five FDA approved drugs- and one device- to treat brain tumors.  For many tumor types, surgery and radiation remain the standard of care.
