A Time for Giving 

Tumor Troopers Christmas


Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children!  We have dressed up our little Tumor Troopers for the holidays and hope they put a smile on your face.


It's hard to believe that we will soon be wrapping up another year. As some of you consider year-end donations during this season of giving, we hope you will keep the children served by BTFC in mind. To that end, we have made it as easy as possible! Simply click here and make your donation online. Not only will your donation be greatly appreciated by BTFC, your gift will truly make a difference for a child and family in need.


Best wishes for a very safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Check out our new Butterfly Blog, where we post stories of hope and inspiration. 
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.
