Fundraising Opportunities and Events

Funds raised by the Head for the Cure Foundation provided the seed money to help launch the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative. More than $2.5 million has been granted to the BTTC since the founding of Head for the Cure. The continued HFTC funding has allowed the BTTC to expand its network of participating institutions to assist in the discovery of new and effective therapies for treatment of brain tumors.
