Join us as we celebrate fifteen years of making a difference in the lives of brain tumor patients and their families! As patients, caregivers, family and friends, the Connecticut Brain Tumor Alliance, Inc. (“CTBTA”) was formed so that no one has to face this disease alone. As we celebrate this milestone 15-year anniversary in 2022, we are proud of our accomplishments to date, but recognize that our work must continue.
Since our beginning, we have granted out nearly $1.5M towards patient outreach programs, research, program support and patient assistance funds at CT hospitals. Our impact has taken on many forms — from research identifying the molecular structure of brain tumor cells to purchasing cinema-vision goggles for pediatric MRI patients – all contributing to our primary vision: To make Connecticut a center of excellence in brain tumor care.
Brain tumors remain the leading cause of cancer related death among children 0-14 years and in males aged 20-39. To commemorate our fifteenth year in 2022, we have welcomedNBT Bank as a new community partner and the presenting sponsor of the anniversary year. NBT kicked off our celebration with a $1,500 check in December 2021 and a pledge of $150 a month throughout 2022. NBT will also work with us throughout the year to promote anniversary gifts. Accordingly, we are asking you to consider a tax-deductible monthly pledge of $15, which is only 50 cents per day, or you can make an impactful difference with a one-time gift of $1,500.
