Brain Tumor Awareness Month

Childhood brain cancer is the leading cancer cause of death in children. Join us this May in raising awareness and research funds for this terrible disease.

Jack’s Story

Jack Hoffman is the inspiration behind the foundation. After being diagnosed with brain cancer at age five, Jack won the hearts of many with his touchdown run in the 2013 Nebraska spring game.

Our Mission Matters

Brain cancer is the

cancer cause of death of children in the United States.
Less than


of the National Cancer Institute’s research investments are spent on childhood cancer.

children are diagnosed with a brain tumor daily.
In the last

years, first-line chemotherapy for child brain cancer has not changed.
Our mission is to raise money to fund impactful pediatric brain cancer research and work to create national awareness for the disease.

Remembering Our Co-Founder


Above all, we fight for our heroes.
