Why Giving Matters

Support from individuals and families allows the Ivy Brain Tumor Center to advance research, improve treatments, and ultimately work to find a cure for brain tumors. Additionally, gifts provide patient education and enhanced patient care. As a donor, you will join a unique and incredible community of people who are determined to see progress made in the field of neuro-oncology.

Some regular donors are former or current patients of the Ivy Brain Tumor Center and Barrow Neurological Institute. Some may have had a friend or family member who received exceptional care, and some are simply people who want to see a day when no family has to experience the devastation of a brain cancer diagnosis. However, while unique in their ways, every donor shares a common and commendable trait of generosity that allows the Ivy Brain Tumor Center to make strides toward finding a cure for brain cancer every day.
