National Brain Tumor Society unrelentingly invests in, mobilizes, and unites our community to discover a cure, deliver effective treatments, and advocate for patients and care partners.
WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT
We believe we can move the needle faster and drive more new discoveries by influencing and funding research, and actually bringing together policy makers, researchers, clinicians doctors and industry organizations to collaborate and share information in order to find better treatments and a cure for brain tumors. We are the only brain tumor organization that has an active public policy agenda, and we directly advocate to policymakers to give brain tumor patients a voice in Washington, D.C.
We are intimately connected with top brain tumor researchers, academics and clinicians. Some of the top brain tumor experts are scientific advisors on our programs, and we hire PhDs to help create informative content and translate new research developments into language that brain tumor patients and their families can understand and act on.
We don’t just write blank checks. We drive a thoughtful research agenda and hold our researchers’ feet to the fire by monitoring their progress and having them report on findings to the community to justify funding.
We support more than 23 signature, regional walks, races and rides and many other community and scientific events, so our mission is strong.
