At the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation for Children parents often tell us that one of the most important things to them is that their child always be remembered. We agree that every child’s life is precious and every child – however short his or her life – makes a unique and important impact on earth. For that reason, we make it possible for families to create a “special named fund” as part of PBTF, like the ones below. This enables families to honor and remember their child while helping other families - without the expense of creating a new nonprofit organization.
Carley’s Rays of Hope, established in 2010 in memory of young Carley McMaster, is dedicated to helping South Carolina families of children with brain and spinal cord tumors with emergency financial needs during their child’s treatment. To learn more, visit www.carleysraysofhope.com.
