How To Get Involved Learn How You Can Help Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation Waiting for news on your own, whether for a new diagnosis or the next steps in your treatment, can be overwhelming. That’s why at our organization, we believe that we can make a difference when we are together. Why We Need Your Support Our nonprofit aims to fund brain tumor research in the hopes of finding a cure for this condition. We believe that without community involvement, we are unable to spread the word about this devastating disease. Community support is also important in advancing research and bringing hope to those who are battling this disease. We are grateful to our supporters for everything that they have done and helped us accomplish. Some of them have been with us since our first Race for Research in 2000. Fundraise Your Way Create a personal fundraiser in support of SBTF to provide support, hope and courage for those affected by a brain tumor diagnosis. Consider a bake sale, BBQ dinner, hero challenge, tennis tournament, golf outing or just ask for donations instead of gifts on a special day. Honor a loved one, dedicate a birthday, or host your own fun event- wherever your imagination takes you. It is fun and easy!
