About the Beneficiaries
Making Headway Foundation improves the quality of life and healing of children suffering from brain and spinal cord tumors. We do this by enhancing medical treatment with caring patient support programs and by funding scientific research geared toward better treatments and cure.
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.
The Gardner Marks Foundation supports the Pediatric, Adolescent, & Young Adult cancer community. We are raising awareness and funds to help families through all stages of the fight against cancer. We help to provide financial, emotional, and logistical support.
