Our Vision & Mission
Eradicate childhood brain cancer through collaboration and raising awareness.
The Lilabean Foundation for Pediatric Brain Cancer Research (LBF) seeks to fund critical childhood brain cancer research and help raise awareness of the severity of this fatal disease.
Our hope is that LBF will have an extraordinary impact on the lives of the many beautiful children affected by this terrible disease.
Investing in research is the most important first step in moving the needle toward innovative new therapies that make a difference in survival and quality of life for children with brain cancer. We are dedicated to being part of the work to find more effective and less harmful therapies for our children. For a complete list of projects and trials funded by LBF please check "Our Progress."
40,000 kids have been diagnosed with a brain tumor over the past 10 years. We are here to help fund a cure.
"Children with cancer touch a special place in people's hearts... And yet as a society, we have failed to put our best resources together. Let's start now. We don't have time to waste.”
