Getting the best, most up-to-date information is critical for making informed decisions about treatment and living with the best quality of life possible.
National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS) is a nonprofit organization committed to finding a cure for brain tumors. We aggressively drive strategic research, advocate for public policies that meet the critical needs of the brain tumor community, and provide patient information. Headquartered in Watertown, Massachusetts, with offices in San Francisco, California and Wilmington, Delaware, we host activities throughout the United States.
Formed in 2008 by the merger of two leading organizations that had served the brain tumor community, the National Brain Tumor Foundation and the Brain Tumor Society, the National Brain Tumor Society is now the largest brain tumor nonprofit organization in the country. Both legacy organizations had been formed in the 1980s by parents and other people who were committed to increasing both research funding and access to resources specific to brain tumors. In 2010, the Kelly Heinz-Grundner Foundation, a Delaware-based organization, joined NBTS as a wholly-owned subsidiary. Founded in 2005, after the death of Kelly Heinz-Grundner to a brain tumor, the group has contributed to NBTS’s efforts to pursue research and public policies that benefit the brain tumor community.
