WELCOME TO THE SSBTR WEBSITE!

Students in leadership positions learn about brain tumors and gain real world experience in running a non-profit business while raising funds for brain tumor research. Beneficiaries of the money we raise are Barrow Neurological Institute, National Brain Tumor Society, Phoenix Childrens Hospital, Steele Childrens Research Center in Tucson, and Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen). With your help we can make a difference. The intent of our website is to further our objectives of disseminating information about this disease process, stimulating more widespread involvement within our community through donating, volunteering and participating in one or more of our events, and publicizing and promoting this exceptional student-run organization.

Philanthropic "Quotes"

  • “I choose to rise up out of that storm and see that in moments of desperation, fear, and helplessness, each of us can be a rainbow of hope, doing what we can to extend ourselves in kindness and grace to one another. And I know for sure that there is no them there's only us.”

  • “If you think of life as like a big pie, you can try to hold the whole pie and kill yourself trying to keep it, or you can slice it up and give some to the people around you, and you still have plenty left for yourself.”

  • “Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go.”

  • “Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.”

  • “We are responsible for the world in which we find ourselves, if only because we are the only sentient force that can change it.”
