How did LBF get started?

The Lilabean Foundation for Pediatric Brain Cancer Research was formed in 2011. After Lila was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in 2009, Lila's parents, Nicole and Mike Giroux, were devastated. As the initial shock and panic settled, Nicole and Mike both wanted to harness their energy, time and fear into something positive for children, like Lila, battling this heartbreaking disease. The Giroux's formed LBF with the intention to accelerate research efforts to find a cure for pediatric brain tumor research.
