Let It Grow with the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and No-Shave November

It’s time to grow that mustache you always wanted, try out that mullet everyone warned you against, and let that leg hair grow wild because No-Shave November has selected the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation as one of its benefiting organizations for the third year in a row!

Childhood brain cancer is a growing threat to families across the country. Diagnoses, mortality rates, and the number of survivors living with long-term side effects are all on the rise. Yet funding for pediatric brain tumor research and family support resources isn’t keeping up.

Help put a stop to childhood brain cancer and start a No-Shave November fundraiser for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

Since 2009, No-Shave November has been a rallying cry for like-minded nonprofits across the cancer community, partnering to raise awareness about cancer’s impact, educating a greater number of individuals about cancer prevention and research, and providing support to patients, survivors, and families. Over the past two years, caring individuals, teams, and corporate partners have gotten hairy during No-Shave November and raised more than $118,000 in support of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s mission.

We are overjoyed to be back and working with so many exceptional organizations. Our goal has always been to spread awareness about cancer with an emphasis on research and prevention. Growing alongside this year's benefiting partners helps us cultivate that awareness and spread our hairy mission to others. Our campaign's exciting new look signals that No-Shave November is for everyone and that we can’t wait to welcome any new No-Shavers to our ongoing fight against cancer. Monica Hill, Matthew Hill Foundation, Inc. President and Co-Founder

Get started today by signing up to fundraise at no-shave.org/register and selecting ‘Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’ from the ‘Select Partnership’ dropdown (non-designated gifts will be shared with the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and all participating nonprofits).

Then, gather your co-workers, friends, and families, ditch your razors, and cancel your waxing appointments. We can’t wait to see how you’ll #LetitGrow for children with brain tumors all month long!

Prefer to keep your hair nice and tidy? You can still support the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation's mission by donating through No-Shave November and selecting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation as your nonprofit of choice.

Pediatric Cancer Neuropsychological Needs Assessment Act Introduced in New York Legislature

A new bill introduced in the New York State Legislature by Senator Shelley B. Mayer and Assembly Member Christopher Burdick will help remove some of the barriers standing between children with cancer and the learning accommodations they need to succeed in school. The Pediatric Cancer Neuropsychological Needs Assessment Act (NY State S.8750) would require insurers to provide coverage for neuropsychological assessments for children diagnosed with cancer that affects brain development or function.
