What is the Pilocytic Pilomyxoid Research Fund?

The Pilocytic (PA/Pilomyxoid Astrocytoma, or PMA) Research Fund has been set up at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institute to fund scientific research for this type of brain tumor. No grant or foundation funding has been available for this form of tumor because it is so rare.

However, there are many families experiencing the tragedy of this tumor in their lives and in that of their children. We invite you to help bring awareness of this rare disease to help researchers and families understand, diagnose, and conquer this disease by continuing research for both treatment and cure of pediatric brain tumors.
