Funding Patient-Focused Research on Gliomas
Introduction
The Ben and Catherine Ivy Foundation is dedicated to improving the survival and quality of life of people diagnosed with brain tumors. We fund promising research because funding leads to answers. And answers lead to hope.

Our ultimate goal is to cure brain cancer, while our immediate goal is to improve diagnostics and treatment. We’re dedicated to improving the lives of all patients with brain cancer by funding research that we hope will lead to the doubling of life expectancy of patients with brain cancer. Our goal is to do this within the next seven years. Since 2005 we’ve committed more than $50 million to research into brain tumors, with the expectation that this will lead to better diagnostics and therapies. We are dedicated to this search because funding leads to answers, and answers lead to hope.
