The National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire hope and provide leadership within the brain tumor community. They seek to find a cure and improve the quality of life for those affected by brain tumors. NBTS funds strategic research, delivers support services, and promotes collaboration. NBTS was formed in 2008 by the merger of two leading organizations that had served the brain tumor community: the National Brain Tumor Foundation and the Brain Tumor Society. Both legacy organizations had been formed in the 1980s by parents and other concerned individuals who were committed to increasing both research funding and access to resources specific to brain tumors.
