More About the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation

Why Was The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation Formed?

When the PBTF was created in 1991, the diagnosis of a brain tumor was virtually a death sentence for a child. Because there was very little research being done into the disease, most treatments were ineffective or harsh, and most children did not survive into adulthood. The PBTF has worked hard to change that reality by funding research to develop new, less invasive therapies that ultimately extend the lives of children. It is this research that will eventually lead to a cure for this most devastating of childhood cancers!
