The Pediatric Low Grade Astrocytoma (PLGA) Foundation (d.b.a. A Kids' Brain Tumor Cure Foundation) was founded in August 2007, as a 501(c)(3) organization by families and friends dedicated to giving hope to children battling the most common forms of pediatric brain tumors, by raising funds for targeted scientific and medical research.
To date, families associated with the Pediatric Low Grade Astrocytoma(PLGA) Foundation have raised over $10.6 million for research and funded over three dozen new research projects targeted specifically at low grade glioma brain tumors. These funds have supported the launch of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute's PLGA Research Program, as well as projects at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Johns Hopkins Medical Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, Univeristy of Pittsburgh Children's Medical Center, Memorial Sloane Kettering Cancer Center and many others.
A Kids' Brain Tumor Cure Foundation awards funds to the most promising research in the search for more effective, less toxic treatment options for these potentially devastating childhood brain tumors.
A Kids' Brain Tumor Cure Foundation actively promotes partnerships with other non-profit organizations, private individuals and government entities and has collaborated on fund raising, education and grant allocations in order to leverage resources and funds.
Our goal is to UNITE families around the country and around the world in the FIGHT for the lives of the children who suffer from the most common forms of childhood brain tumors.
Together, we can defeat childhood brain tumors by increasing awareness, education, fundraising and research.
