About Making Headway Foundation
Making Headway® is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation dedicated to the care, comfort and cure of children with brain and spinal cord tumors. When a child is diagnosed with a brain or spinal cord tumor, the future is uncertain; families struggle with anxiety and fear. A strong medical team can help the family take its first crucial steps forward. But reconstructing a life and nurturing a family devastated by the emotional and physical demands of treatment and its aftermath go beyond what a medical environment can provide. The whole family needs a special kind of care and support.
