The mission of PLGA Foundation (Pediatric Low Grade Astrocytomas) is to act as a central resource and a portal for information for parents, patients, families, clinicians, researchers, specialists, and other non-profit institutions seeking information about low-grade (grade 1) gliomas and juvenile pilocytic astrocytoma (JPA). JPA is the most common childhood brain tumor type diagnosed in children from birth to 19 years of age. JPA is also a tumor that is reported in adults, ages 20 to 50. The ultimate goal of PLGA Foundation is to accelerate the pace of JPA scientific research by acting both as a fundraiser and as a catalyst for all JPA-designed fundraising activities.
