Funding for childhood brain cancer research has flatlined, putting research to save kids’ lives at serious risk. Children with brain cancer, their families, and doctors at hospitals like Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta are counting on the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation to make sure progress doesn’t stop.

Every $1 we invest in pediatric brain cancer research generates another $12 in research funding. Your support – no matter the size – will change the lives of parents who just learned their child has brain cancer, kids in Georgia hospitals who can’t go outside and play the games they love, survivors afraid their cancer will come back, and families and friends grieving the devastating loss of a child to this disease.

You have the power to change these lives and so much more when you support the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

We’re calling on committed supporters, advocates, and partners like you to defeat childhood brain cancer. Will you answer the call?

The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation's research funding, family support, and advocacy efforts are leading the way in ending childhood brain cancer for Atlanta families.

Research Funding

The largest patient advocacy funder of pediatric brain tumor research, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s seed funding paves the way to a deeper understanding of the unique biology of childhood brain cancer. Currently, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation funds a three-year project with investigators at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Georgia State University Medical Center, and Children’s National Medical Center, who aim to understand how we can best optimize outcomes in low-grade glioma survivors. 

Family Support

No parent is prepared to hear their child has a brain tumor. When a child is diagnosed with a brain tumor, families may feel overwhelmed and alone. Because of communities like yours, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation can be here for families every step of the way – from early diagnosis to survivorship or bereavement, and beyond.  


The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation has joined forces with the Georgia Cancer Consortium as a member of their palliative care working group. As part of the group, we were able to address the biggest issues facing patient families in Georgia and put forth recommendations that would help evaluate access to quality pediatric palliative care. In addition to this work, advocates are organizing to engage with lawmakers on legislation that will help support families impacted by childhood brain cancer.

I’m honored to be part of the movement to end childhood brain cancer and to share our story with you. Throughout our journey, my family has gained perspective. I used to make myself sick worrying about long-term things. Worries about the future became worries about this day, this minute. I no longer trouble myself with the future. Perspective lies in the present. It’s the painful shock of a seasoned veteran who doesn’t want to see this disease happen to other beautiful babies. Ramona King, Georgia resident and mom to Ezra
