Not alone. Thanks to the work of the American Brain Tumor Association, these words resonate deeply for those impacted by a brain tumor.
Not alone because as patients and families face the fear and uncertainty that follow a brain tumor diagnosis, the ABTA is there, offering comfort, guidance, insight and resources. We provide answers to urgent questions about where to go, what to do and how to cope.
Not alone because as the first national organization committed to funding brain tumor research, the ABTA has fostered a generation of researchers who have gone on to lead the nation’s most prestigious brain tumor centers. Today, ABTA-funded researchers are working across and beyond traditional disciplines to bring new perspectives and ideas to the field.
Not alone because even the simple act of making a donation to the American Brain Tumor Association is now part of something larger. A benefactor has awarded us a two-year challenge grant in recognition of the 500 people diagnosed with a brain tumor every day in the United States. Through our “Challenge for the 500,” gifts from new donors, and increased gifts from previous donors, will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $500,000.
Together we will fund more research and reach more people, with the shared goal of improving, extending and ultimately saving lives. With your gift now going twice as far, those coping with a brain tumor diagnosis will know—more than ever—that they are not alone.
Thank you for your generosity,
Elizabeth M. Wilson
