How your money helps

TSOH keeps administrative costs to the bare minimum, pays no salaries and operates on a tiny marketing budget. Our low-cost events leverage donations and discounts so the majority of your dollars go to research and family support programs.

Why Research?
Researching less harmful treatments aligns with our mission to bring hope to families, and we are proud of how our small organization (recognized in this article by Cure)  has used your dollars to make a difference. In 2017, we plan to support two research initiatives, including our first clinical trial (learn more).

Why Family Support?
Each year, we earmark $10,000 to partner with other respected brain tumor organizations to deliver programs that help families. Through the years, support from Jenna’s Rainbow, Friends of Jaclyn, CBTF, PBTF, Make-a-Wish NJ and others have helped Thea’s family keep going. We know how important it is for families to LIVE and not just SURVIVE.
