Organization Description
The Be Brave for Life Foundation was founded in 2015 with the objective of improving the lives of individuals affected by benign brain tumors and cerebrovascular disease. We are a grassroots organization which started with 12 year old Riley Callen’s dream to help find a cure, not just for herself, but for everyone out there with a brain tumor diagnosis. Historically, most brain tumor research has been focused on malignant tumors, largely overlooking the need for advancement in the treatment of non-malignant tumors. Since two-thirds of all primary brain tumors are non-malignant, the Foundation aspires to address this unmet need.

Here are the Foundation’s three strategic goals:
1. Support cutting-edge research initiatives designed to bring better treatment options for, and aid in the early detection of, benign brain tumors and cerebrovascular disease
2. Encourage and foster collaboration amongst researchers, doctors, and foundations
3. Actively promote youth leadership and participation in benign brain tumor and cerebrovascular disease advocacy.


How to Apply
Please send a letter of interest with personal statement, resume, three references and salary requirement, preferably in one pdf document, to Laura Callen, Executive Director, at bebravefundraiser@gmail.com.
