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"

  • New technique treats brain tumors without life altering complications

    Neurosurgeons have long considered tumors in deep areas of the brain inoperable, giving patients very few treatment options and, often, little hope. A new tool is allowing doctors better access to those hard-to-reach sections of the brain, using a minimally-invasive approach to remove lesions.

  • Brain tumor removal through a hole smaller than a dime

    Neurosurgeons at Houston Methodist Hospital removed a different lesion from Vincent’s brain through a tube inserted into a hole smaller than a dime and he went home the next day.

  • New Clue to Aggressive Brain Tumors

    Scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have identified a biological marker that may help predict survival in people with deadly brain tumors.
