About Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation
The Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation (CBTF), founded in 1988, funds scientific research on the causes of, and improved treatments for, pediatric brain and spinal cord tumors and provides support and educational services to families and survivors. CBTF distributes “A Resource Guide for Parents of Children with Brain and Spinal Cord Tumors” at no charge to families in English and Spanish, co-sponsors educational seminars and teleconferences, and provides online information through its web site. Each year, CBTF provides information and referrals to critical services to hundreds of families from all over the world. The Parent-to-Parent Network provides support to newly diagnosed families from experienced parents who have been trained as volunteers. A newsletter, The Challenge, is published twice a year.
