About Making Headway

The discovery that a child has a brain or spinal cord tumor changes everything. The future becomes uncertain; families struggle with anxiety and fear. A strong medical team can help a family take its first crucial steps forward. But reconstructing a life and nurturing a family devastated by the emotional and physical demands of treatment and its aftermath go beyond what a medical environment can provide. That’s where Making Headway comes in.
