  • Giving Thanks and Raising Funds!

    November 2021

    BCBA Founder/Director, Robyn Leonard is still fundraising for brain cancer research because the stats haven’t changed!! For decades people diagnosed with brain cancer have faced with the same dismal outcomes.

    "There is a cure, we just need to do more research to find it", says Robyn. "I’m very thankful for the researchers and clinicians who are searching tirelessly for a breakthrough and the generous people who donate to the cause – without them we stand still, with the same outcomes and the same limited treatment options".

    So this is BCBA’s Thanksgiving Fundraiser. Please donate to help fund more research into brain cancer, to keep hope alive for people diagnosed with this cruel disease.
