In the spirit of the late Senator Kennedy's vision, the Grey Ribbon Crusade consists of more than 110 non-profit organizations, joined together as a united front against brain tumors. Representing all 50 states, the Grey Ribbon Crusade has over 500 individual members and hosts a website that gives patients direct access to much needed information, research, and resources. Join the Grey Ribbon Crusade as we help raise awareness and funding for the much needed research being done to eradicate this disease!
To date, the Heroes of Hope Race, with your support, has provided over half of a million dollars to Los Angeles childhood and adult brain tumor and cancer research.
iDance4aCURE, our newest campaign, unites the entire dance community to raise funds for less toxic childhood cancer research. iDance4aCURE started three years ago with one dance studio and has spread across the globe. Wth over 50 participating dance studios, professional dancers and choreographers, dance teachers, competitions, conventions and thousands of individual dancers, iDance4aCURE has already donated over $600,000 to childhood cancer research.
Chances are, you or someone you know, has been affected by brain tumors or cancer. Current statistics reflect that:
Due to the location of the tumors, most patients experience a loss in their ability to move, speak, see, hear and breathe and brain tumors are very difficult to treat.
