CTBTA Donates $15,000 to the Connecticut Children's Medical Center to help create the Connecticut Brain Tumor Alliance Family Assistance Fund


On July 12, the CT Brain Tumor Alliance established a CTBTA Family Assistance Fund at the Connecticut Children's Medical Center (CCMC) to help families of children afflicted with Brain Cancer. This fund will be managed by the social workers at CCMC and awarded to families who need assistance paying their utilities, buying groceries, gas cards, meals, childcare for other kids at home, cleaning services, and many of the other "non-medical but overall family well-being" needs.

CCMC Message of Thanks
Good morning. Nate, Mary and I write to send you a quick note of thanks for yesterday's check presentation and very generous $15,000 donation to establish the Connecticut Brain Tumor Alliance Family Assistance Fund.

We are delighted and most grateful to have the opportunity to help the families of children with brain tumors who are struggling with extreme financial hardship. These important funds will make such a difference in the lives of some very special people. I know that Mary will send you redacted stories from time to time of the people who have received assistance.

It was a special pleasure to see you, Hannah and almost the entire board of the Connecticut Brain Tumor Alliance. We thank you again for your continued support and for partnering with Connecticut Children's to help improve the lives of children with brain tumors and their families in such a deeply meaningful way.

With best wishes and appreciation,

Chris
