The Gray Matters Brain Cancer Foundation was formed in 2010 to help raise public awareness of brain cancer and to help fund targeted research with the goal of finding a cure.
We plan to meet our Mission goal in two ways:
- Raising public awareness about brain tumors by educating the public regarding the symptoms of the disease, and current treatment options. It is our hope that by increasing awareness, people afflicted with this disease will receive earlier diagnosis and in turn, achieve a better chance of survival.
- Provide funding to researchers working toward finding a breakthrough in brain cancer diagnosis & treatments which will lead to a cure. We believe that research needs to be "targeted" to provide the best opportunity to finding a cure. We realize that the medical community and the general public need to better understand the causes of brain tumors, determining possible preventative measures and discovering new and improved treatment options, including both mainstream and complementary medicines. We will support health care professionals who are dedicated to these areas of research.
