The Gray Matters Foundation is a nonprofit organization created to support and empower brain tumor patients and their loved ones through encouragement and personal outreach.

We are a community of caring people – Brain Buddies – who think that brain tumors stink!

If you are here, you might be a brain tumor patient or a family member, loved one or friend of someone with a brain tumor. You might be interested in learning more or helping others.

Welcome to the Gray Matters Foundation. Here we share information, give honor and recognition to our heroes and recruit more Brain Buddies for the fight against brain tumors. We welcome you and invite you to learn more about us and our vision, our plans and our goals.

You Brain Buddie,


We are about support...not statistics.

The Gray Matters Foundation supports children, adults and families. Learn more about our mission.
