Heroes for Hope Mission

Give families HOPE, to be the HEROES they need when faced with brain cancer.

Funding Objectives

  • Support novel research through genetic testing & individualized treatments.
  • Provide necessary resources to families in order to effectively care for a child with a brain tumor.

Why Fund Pediatric Brain Tumors?

  • Brain tumors are the leading cause of death in children by disease
  • Pediatric Cancers do not get the same funding as adult cancers (4% yearly) Less than 1% to Brain Cancer
  • No new standard level of care in certain brain cancers, such as DIPG, in over 20 years.

What Does Your Donation Mean Long-Term?

  • Endowments never go away, they always grow
  • Directly touch families and children locally
  • Support the largest cancer and blood disorders program in the Midwest
  • Allows the fund to contribute to novel research and implementation of individualized medicine.
