A Special Thank-You

Chubb - JSLOn Tuesday, 2/8,

BTFC held a special

gathering to thank the J. Smith Lanier & Co. golf team who participated in last year's Chubb Charity Challenge on November 8th & 9th.

Their excellent golfing skills landed them in 6th place, bringing home $25,000 for BTFC!  Thanks to all our friends at Chubb and JSL for their longstanding generous support of BTFC!

Christina's Kidz Miami Picnic

Miami PicnicA great time was had by all at the first annual Christina's Kidz Family picnic for local families at Tropical Park in Miami on 1/29. The group enjoyed a traditional hot dog and hamburger lunch, music, games, bike-riding, and, best of all, networking with old and new friends. Thanks to Drs. Miguel and Adriana Reyes, parents of Christina's Kidz' Christina Reyes who is away at dental school, for their help in coordinating the event. "It was so great to bring these special families together," said BTFC's Mary Moore who planned the picnic around her annual visit to Miami Children's Hospital. Click here to see all photos, and watch for more exciting news from Christina's Kidz coming soon!

Haven's Heaven by Katie Grant

Haven's Heaven

Haven's Heaven is a wonderful children's book written and illustrated by Katie Grant, who  addresses thoughtful questions
from Haven and her little sister, Grace. The book was inspired by questions Grant's own daughters

asked about Heaven.

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.
