$20 for 20 Fundraiser

In honor of Lanette’s amazing journey, we are asking for your kind donations to The Gray Matters Foundation 
$20* for 20 years of life post brain tumor diagnosis.

From Patient to Founder

Twenty years ago Lanette was diagnosed with brain cancer and has since had 5 brain surgeries. She has exceeded survival expectations and now is a bright light and strong support system for those suffering from brain tumors.

Today she is doing good for the brain tumor community through The Gray Matters Foundation.

We are about Support, not Statistics

Each donation to The Gray Matters Foundation goes to support brain tumor patients and families. We are a 100% volunteer run organization. We don’t raise money for research or medical expenses. We raise money for people.

Our person-to-patient outreach efforts support and encourage brain tumor patients and survivors. We help spread joy and happiness in what can be a very difficult time in someone’s life.

* $20 is just a suggestion (and because it fits our theme). You can, of course, choose whatever amount you wish to donate. Big or small, every donation dollar helps us do what we do. Thank you so much for your support! 😊

We are switching it up this year! Get all the details!

Sponsors + Donors

We ❤ you and thank you for helping us spread the love and joy.

A huge thank you to those who have already joined our fundraising efforts by donating or sponsoring our "Cheers to 20 Years" Party.

Please consider how you might help.

We want everyone in the brain tumor community to be able to come and celebrate with us. Admission to the Party is FREE but we wouldn't be able to do it without the support of our generous sponsors and donors.
