ator for the National Cancer Institute-sponsored Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium where he is a member of the consortium's steering, scientific, new agents and angiogenesis committees. He is also the site Principal Investigator for the Children's Oncology Group Phase I Consortium.

The 7th Annual Dream & Promise Gala, produced by Charlotte Simon Productions, is the signature fundraising event for Children's Brain Tumor Foundation. Funds raised support the organization's program and education efforts and helps fund research for treatment and progress toward cures.

The Children's Brain Tumor Foundation (CBTF) was founded in 1988 by a group of parents, physicians and friends to improve the treatment, quality of life, and the long-term outlook for children with brain and spinal cord tumors through research support, education, and advocacy to families and survivors. Our goal is to ensure parents and children know they are not alone in their struggle.

Now in our 21st year, we serve children and families nationwide affected by brain and spinal cord tumors. We provide support to families in the form of information and delivered online and via our toll-free line by professional pediatric oncology social workers. We help parents network via our Parent-2-Parent Network (P2P). We deliver hundreds of P2P Bags containing valuable information and support products. We also fund research to speed treatment and cures both nationally and internationally.
