On behalf of my fellow volunteer board members, I welcome you to the Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation (SBTF), a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit Foundation and public charity.
The SBTF supports critical, cutting edge brain tumor research at major medical centers throughout the Southeast. Our annual Race for Research held in Atlanta, Georgia, is our main fundraising event held each fall. Over the past decade, Race for Research successes have led to the funding of over $2.3 million dollars in research grants to leading researchers at major medical centers throughout the Southeast.
Our volunteer Board is a diverse group comprised of individuals who’ve been touched by brain tumors in many different ways. As patients, family members, healthcare professionals and friends; we are all committed to promoting the awareness, communicating with patients and families and raising critical funds for research which furthers advancements in the treatment of brain tumors.
The SBTF offers a monthly support group, led by a nurse practitioner that is held the first Thursday of each month. Our group offers a safe and supportive environment for patients and families to share their experiences and receive support.
As a brain tumor patient myself (Grade II Astrocytoma), I am deeply committed to advancing the mission of SBTF forward. Our ability to serve the brain tumor community is dependent on each of you. Whether you support us with a financial donation in our fundraising efforts or with your time as a volunteer, each of you is a vital and integral part of our success and we thank you.
To learn more about the SBTF, speak to a member of our Board, or to request information, please contact us at 786-505-SBTF (7283) or via email at email@example.com.
