GLENN GARCELON FOUNDATION

Each year approximately 80,000people in the United States are diagnosed with a brain tumor – that is an average of over 220 people every day.   In addition to the often debilitating physical effects such as severe headaches, seizures, hearing loss, loss of balance and difficulties with coordination, brain tumors may also cause cognitive, behavioral and emotional problems.  In some cases, these symptoms are severe enough that round-the-clock supervision is needed, forcing patients and their loved ones to face financial challenges after a brain tumor diagnosis.

In 2010, the Glenn Garcelon Foundation was established to improve the quality of life of brain tumor patients by providing them with much needed emotional and financial support. It is named for a man who devoted his life to helping others and who died of a glioblastoma brain tumor in 2008.

We understand how difficult day-to-day existance becomes while living with a brain tumor and we are passionate about reliving some of the stress by providing financial assistance.
