The mission of the American Brain Tumor Association is to advance the understanding and treatment of brain tumors with the goals of improving, extending and, ultimately, saving the lives of those impacted by a brain tumor diagnosis. We do this through interactions and engagements with brain tumor patients and their families, collaborations with allied groups and organizations, and the funding of brain tumor research.
Program Description
Services include the following:
  • Free educational pamphlets on brain tumor types and treatment options,
  • A toll free CareLine through which patients and caregivers can ask questions and be connected with resources,
  • A website with comprehensive info on brain tumor diagnosis, treatment, and care
  • Educational webinars
  • A nationwide database of established brain tumor support groups,
  • A listing of well-regarded brain tumor treatment centers,
  • An online support community,
  • A peer mentoring program for brain tumor patients and caregivers
The ABTA offers national conferences and educational meetings for patients and their families.

The ABTA also offers the first and only nationwide brain tumor volunteer network, called ABTA CommYOUnity™. By joining the ABTA CommYOUnity™, volunteers are part of a large and growing movement consisting of passionate individuals from across the country working together to make an impact in the brain tumor community. Benefits of joining include matching volunteer activities with interests and flexibility of time.
