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.

RAWF Announces an Art Exhibition to Showcase the Creativity of Pediatric Brain Tumor Survivors

May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month and we are featuring the art of survivors and patients diagnosed as children. Many brain tumor/brain cancer survivors find art 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. 

The works will be judged by professionals but we also want your input. Please explore our virtual gallery and vote for the work that speaks to you.

Winners will be announced on May 31. Visit the website »
