National Brain Tumor Society receives $100,000 grant from Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research

For the second time in as many years, Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research has made a grant of $100,000, demonstrating their dedication to support the NBTS subsidiary, the Defeat Pediatric Brain Tumors Research Collaborative.

The Rally Foundation, an organization investing in under-studied childhood cancers, awards grants through a competitive dual peer review process consisting of 48 of the top childhood cancer researchers throughout the United States and Canada. The latest grant supplements a previous $100,000 award announced in September last year, steering further innovation and acceleration in pediatric brain cancer research.

The Defeat Pediatric Brain Tumors Research Collaborative, a program consisting of research teams from some of the world's best cancer research hospitals, leads the acceleration of global research and drug discovery to improve clinical outcomes for pediatric brain tumor patients. With help from Rally, the Collaborative will continue to grow and share its research in an effort to improve pediatric brain tumor patient survival.
