The Mission of the Glenn Garcelon Foundation is to empower and support to brain tumor patients and their families by awarding grants to help with expenses (medical and otherwise) that are beyond their means. The goal is to ease some of the financial burden that often adds to the stress of a brain tumor diagnosis and treatment. GGF is one of few charitable foundations that provides financial assistance directly to brain tumor patients. GGF is an all volunteer, grass roots organization with no paid staff.
The sole purpose of the Glenn Garcelon Foundation is to alleviate some of the stress that often results from the unexpected financial burdens associated with living with a brain tumor. This allows the patient and his/her caregivers to focus with less distraction on treatment and quality time with loved ones. In order to fulfill our mission, we hold fundraising events and also count on donations from those who believe in our cause. The number of people being diagnosed with brain tumors is rising, thus in order for us to continue to provide much needed grants, we must depend on the generosity of others.
