The University of Cincinnati Brain Tumor Center, a regional destination, provides innovative and compassionate care for patients with brain tumors while striving to find cures and discover why these tumors occur.  The funds from our past events have helped us achieve new benchmarks as we have moved forward with various brain tumor research projects.  Each year, funds raised by this event help support at least two pilot research grants for our UC researchers who are determined to find a brain tumor cure.  Several of these projects have led to clinical trials, including one that could change the face of cancer treatment.
