2017 Progress Report

As the year is coming to a close, we’re in the midst of End of Year push to continue our mission in 2018 and beyond. But what have we accomplished in the past two years?

We’re proud to present our 2016-2017 NBTS Progress Report, which details the results and discoveries in brain tumor research and advocacy that were generated directly by the critical work you funded.

Also in the report are stories from the brain tumor community, including patients, caregivers and one of our most influential researchers.

Amanda Conte’s tumor had a recurrence and robbed her of her career as a nurse. But she wasn’t going to let it stop her from helping others. So, on Giving Tuesday, Amanda joined us at the office to publicly ask for people to support the work of the National Brain Tumor Society. Because of her, and all of you, we surpassed our goal and raised money directly for research and advocacy. Watch her video.
