Both pediatric and adult patients who have surgery at UAB or Childrens of AL have tumor tissue stored for laboratory research.  These samples allow our research efforts to be extremely relevant to the human condition.   This year all proceeds raised will benefit the Brain Tumor Tissue Bank Bio -Repository which provides a centralized source to store and disseminate specimens from patients operated on at UAB or Children’s of Alabama. This facilitates research for treatments for both children and adults battling brain cancer
