At the American Brain Tumor Association, we are continuously amazed by the unmatched generosity of our greater Chicago area community and your passion for our mission. Because of you, the ABTA has been able to fund more than $1 million dollars in critical research grants to Chicago-based scientists. Your support has allowed us to create and provide patient and caregiver- focused programs throughout the year. From Partners in Treatment and Care, to our annual Patient & Family Conference in Chicago, we continue to explore new programs and relationships right here in your back yard.
BT5K Chicago is part of the American Brain Tumor Association’s (ABTA) signature Breakthrough for Brain Tumors 5K series. Currently, more than 700,000 people in the U.S. are living with a brain tumor diagnosis. Your support allows the ABTA to fund desperately needed brain tumor research, patient programs and support services.
“The money the ABTA raises made it possible for me to apply for and receive a Medical Student Summer Fellowship (MSSF).”
“The money the ABTA raises makes it possible for them to host their annual National Patient & Family Conference that I attended this year. It was one of the most impactful experiences of my life as a brain tumor survivor.”
