The diagnosis of a brain tumor is life-changing and treatment can cause multiple life long side effects —
many of which are rare and difficult to manage.

From the purchase of a lifesaving medical device to developing and producing tools to help with care management; the Raymond A. Wood Foundation (RAWF) helps survivors thrive through creating connections to innovation and information that can improve life after survival.

The 2nd Annual Art of Surviving is Underway!

May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month and we will be featuring art and creative writing by survivors and patients diagnosed as children. Many brain tumor/brain cancer survivors find art and writing as a way to cope with the challenges that come with treatment, a means to calm and focus a healing brain or an opportunity to express their experiences.
