A brighter future for kids with brain cancers.

“The greatest good is what we do for one another” – Mother Theresa

A few times a year, we believe it’s important to share our initiatives with our supporters. July feels like the perfect time to do this.

What Do We Do?
Tali’s Fund supports research targeting safe, effective treatments for children with rare brain cancers. We also work to promote awareness of research, resources, and treatments related to childhood brain cancers.

One Child Inspired Global Collaboration
In 2008, Tali’s Fund approached the Arthur and Sonia Labatt Brain Tumour Research Centre at SickKids Hospital in Toronto, Canada to initiate research in the area of ATRT.

That initial investment has led to landmark findings by SickKids investigators as well as global collaboration with over 150 participating centres worldwide. Tali’s Fund continues to support Dr. Huang’s research team and their collaborative efforts, as well as to advocate for much-needed ongoing research to find a cure for ATRT and other rare childhood brain cancers.
