A non-profit organization, Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation was founded in 1988 by dedicated parents, physicians and friends. Our mission is to improve the treatment, quality of life and the long term outlook for children with brain and spinal cord tumors through research, support, education, and advocacy to families and survivors.
While many programs support brain tumor patients, siblings are often left without support for their trauma. CBTF aims to build a national Sibling Support Program – both online and face-to-face – in order to gain more understanding of the issues siblings face and to provide clinical and peer support for this often-neglected group.
In honor of National Siblings Day, which is held on April 10th, Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation is launching a month long campaign in April to raise funds and awareness for the Sibling Support Program. Our goal is to raise $150,000 to properly pilot this program.
