September - A Time to Honor and Remember

AJ Owens recently obtained his driver's license. Read all about it on our Butterfly Blog where he and his mother, Chris Owens, share their story. 

Another child featured on our Butterfly Blog is Henry Cermak who sadly lost his valiant battle with brain cancer in 2008. A sample of his creative poetry can be found here.

There are hundreds of children like AJ and Henry who deserve recognition and remembrance this month and always. Watch for upcoming issues of the Butterfly E-Bulletin this month featuring more great kids.

Established in 1983 in Atlanta, GA, the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children was the first non-profit organization in the United States to focus on pediatric brain tumor disease. The Foundation's mission is: "To provide financial assistance, social support, and information for families of children with brain and spinal cord tumors; fund research projects that improve treatment options and search for a cure; and raise public awareness of the disease and advocate on behalf of children who are affected." BTFC serves children and families throughout Georgia and the Southeast. Our south Florida chapter, Christina's Kidz, is dedicated to helping Florida families.
