Brain tumors are one of the deadliest forms of cancer, therefore money for research is critical in finding new and effective forms of treatment and improving patient's quality of life. 


100% of your donations will be given to our research partners to support novel and innovative Glioblastoma brain cancer research. 


Glioblastoma (GBM) Facts and Figures:

  • Glioblastoma is the most complex, deadly, and treatment resistant cancers

  • More than 14,490 Americans are expected to receive a GBM diagnosis in 2023.

  • GBM accounts for 50.1% of all primary malignant brain tumors.

  • It is estimated that more than 10,000 individuals in the United States will succumb to glioblastoma every year.

  • For the most common form of primary malignant brain tumors, glioblastoma, the five-year relative survival rate is only 6.9% and median survival is only 8 months

  • Mean age of diagnosis is 64

  • The exact cause of a Glioblastoma is not known

  • In addition to being life-threatening, GBM and its harsh treatments inflict devastation upon the brain, which controls cognition, mood, behavior, and every function of every organ and body part

  • There have only been 4 drugs and 1 device ever approved by the FDA for the treatment of Glioblastoma since 1920

  • None of these treatments have succeed in significantly extending patient lives

  • Prominent Americans who’ve been lost to this type of cancer include: Beau Biden (former Attorney General for the state of Delaware and son of President Biden); Gary Carter (Hall of Fame Major League Baseball player); U.S. Senator Edward “Ted” Kennedy (Democratic politician); U.S. Senator John McCain (Republican politician and former presidential nominee); and Edward “Tug” McGraw (Major League Baseball player and father of country music star and actor, Tim McGraw)

"GBMs are not only deadly, they significantly impact the quality of life remaining for the patient and change everything for loved ones. GBMs do not discriminate, inflicting men, women, and children of all ages, races and ethnicity. Now is the time to make progress against this horrific disease!" - National Brain Tumor Society


With the funds raised, we will:

  • Identify the most promising and innovative GBM research and/or clinical trials

  • Donate money to support GBM research

  • Identify effective Glioblastoma (GBM) brain tumor treatments and drugs

  • Increase survivability rates

  • Improve patient quality of life

  • Ultimately, find a cure for Glioblastoma (GBM) brain tumors
