25 years ago, Making Headway Foundation was established with an ambitious mission to provide compassionate care for children and families impacted by a pediatric brain or spinal cord tumor, as well as to fund vital medical research. What started as help for just a few has grown into assistance for thousands, through a wide range of programs, services, and research investments.
Over the past 25 years, we have raised and allocated over $26 million to support medical research, quality-of-life programs, college scholarships, hospital care services, clinical trials, neuro-oncology fellowships, family events, emergency care, educational advocacy, bereavement services, raising awareness, playroom improvements, free family and individual, therapy, health and wellness, tissue banking, and research equipment.
Having a child with a brain or spinal cord tumor will always be devastating. Beyond the best possible medical care, families need support and resources that begin at the hospital and radiate outward with educational and counseling services, advocacy, and so much more. For 25 years, Making Headway has stood with the children and their families, helping and supporting them with the vital services they need, for as long as they need it.
None of this would have been possible without our supporters. We are so grateful to each of the more than 25,000 people who have donated to Making Headway. We have done so much, and come so far, but there is still so much to do. With your continued support, Making Headway will always be there to help those most in need.
