B*CURED’s mission is to end brain cancer by funding innovative research grants. To date, B*CURED has awarded 22 grants to investigators searching for a cure for brain cancer at nationally ranked universities and hospitals. B*CURED is an all-volunteer 501 (c) 3 organization, founded in 2008 by Debbie Needle and Melissa Salamé. B*CURED is run by co-presidents Karena Bailey and Kristin Duda. All money raised goes directly to brain cancer research. B*CURED's fight is personal. All of us have had a loved one affected by this horrible illness. It is time to change the depressingly low statistics and give people the chance to survive brain cancer. We will #BeatBrainCancer!
