Raymond A. Wood Foundation Foundation Relies On Donations
According to Amy Wood, Executive Director of the Raymond A. Wood Foundation, brain tumors diagnosed in the hypothalamic-pituitary axis in the brain are highly survivable, however, most often leaves the patient with lifelong secondary conditions that are rare and challenging to manage. The foundation’s mission is to support survivors of these brain tumors and their caregivers by providing a means to get access to education, medical devices or therapies that may help with ongoing chronic conditions that result from brain tumor treatment. The foundation also connects with treating doctors to find better ways to support these survivors. Donations from events like this support the foundation’s programs and outreach.
