American Brain Tumor Association
Heart of the Brain’s 5-Year Goal
Heart of The Brain’s corporate sponsors generously cover our operating costs. This means 100% of your personal donations support the life-changing research happening at the Brain Tumor Center at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), to treat and find a cure for brain cancer.
Under the co-direction of Dr. Linda Liau and Dr. Timothy Cloughesy, the UCLA Brain Tumor Center is part of a prestigious network of scientists, researchers and physicians whom share the same goal: Delivering the best available treatments, while also working towards a cure. In 2017, UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center and the UCLA Brain Tumor Center were designated a Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) by the National Cancer Institute, making it one of only six brain cancer programs in the nation to receive this recognition.
The SPORE grant provides $11.4 million over a 5-year period. HOTB’s goal is to match it (or come close) by donating at least $10 million by June 20, 2024.
We are a young and emerging non-profit foundation with a big heart and an even bigger goal. It is our privilege to take the opportunity to reach out to you to become a friend of brain cancer patients throughout the world.
Together we can make a difference and help support the doctors who work hard on behalf of patients to find a cure. Every dollar brings us one step closer and we are very grateful for the help of each and every one of you!
