Grey Matters...The Connecticut Brain Tumor Alliance Presents an Incredible Gift
Story by Whitney Dionne, Director Communications and Stewardship, Saint Francis Foundation, reprinted with permission.
The Connecticut Brain Tumor Alliance, Inc. is celebrating its 10 year anniversary. They were founded by brain tumor patients and caregivers to raise awareness of the disease, provide hope and support for others living with brain tumors in Connecticut and raise money to support and advocate cutting-edge research. Their gift of $25,000 will continue to support brain tumor patients with financial needs and the nurse navigator program at Smilow Cancer Hospital at Saint Francis.
This incredible group of inspiring individuals has given over $200,000 to Saint Francis. We are grateful for their partnership and look forward to celebrating their anniversary on Friday, May 19, 2017 at 6:00 pm at The Society Room in Hartford. Please visit their website for more information about the Gala of Hope, ctbta.org.
