Success Story

Our Mission
The mission of the Team Buddy Forever
Foundation is to fund awareness, advocacy and
treatment research of pediatric brain cancers,
while assisting families of children diagnosed
with DIPG with the necessary financial support
and networking resources for treatment
options during this traumatic period.
How We Help
An estimated 35 percent of families battling
pediatric brain cancer will file for bankruptcy
as a result of medical costs, travel expenses
and the potential loss of income by family
members during treatment. We are committed
to reducing these financial hardships by
assisting with the following:
 Mortgage/rent payments
 Auto payments
 Utilities
 Food cards
 Fuel cards
 Travel expenses to and from treatments
Why We Help
Brain tumors remain the most common
cause of cancer-related death in children, and
Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) is the
leading cause of death from pediatric brain
tumors. Only four percent of cancer research
funding is allocated toward childhood cancers
and, of that, only one percent is spent on
DIPG research.
