We've set up this page to make it easy for LIMA members to make individual donations to the "I Give Because I'm Grateful" campaign in support of the Children's Brain Tumor Tissue Consortium". 100% of funds raised by LIMA support this Consortium, which was founded by the Children's Brain Tumor Foundation to find a cure for children's brain and spinal cord tumors. The Consortium, based at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, also includes Seattle Children's, Chicago Children's, and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
LIMA’s funding supports the acquisition and analysis of pediatric brain tumor tissue. Through analysis we will find the underlying causes of these cancers and be able to test agents to treat these causes.
