Mission Statement

The mission of the American Brain Tumor Association is to advance the understanding and treatment of brain tumors with the goals of improving, extending and, ultimately, saving the lives of those impacted by a brain tumor diagnosis.

We do this through interactions and engagements with brain tumor patients and their families, collaborations with allied groups and organizations, and the funding of brain tumor research.

Description

Founded in 1973, the American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) was the first national nonprofit organization dedicated solely to brain tumors. For over 40 years, the ABTA has been providing critical funding to researchers working toward breakthroughs in brain tumor diagnosis, treatment and care. We remain the only national organization providing comprehensive resources and serving the complex supportive care needs of brain tumor patients and their caregivers - from diagnosis through treatment and beyond.

I spent a few hours helping ABTA prep packets for their 5K this weekend and was so glad I was free to help. They definitely can really use more volunteers to help with big projects like this. I saw first hand their commitment to research and supporting patients and their families. I plan to volunteer at ABTA again in the future.

I would recommend this organization because my friend had a brain tumor so I know the importance of this organization and I want to help and spread awareness by doing my part in volunteering.

This is a great organization. My family has been helping out the ABTA with this annual 5K Event in Chicago for the past 4 years, and will be participating again this year. Without the help of the ABTA and other Brain Tumor research foundations, my sister may have had to face a more invasive brain surgery to have her tumor removed. Her tumor grew back, but not in the same spot, so now new surgery is needed yet. But we continue to support the ABTA every year in case their research can find a way to remove the new tumor once and for all. And also, to help others be survivors like Beth.
