I Also want you to check out couple of great non profit organizations who have helped us over the years.:)
The Tug McGraw Foundation was established to raise funds for pioneering brain cancer research, increase public awareness of the disease, and support college students who exemplify leadership and Tug’s inspiring “Ya Gotta Believe” spirit. Over 200,000 adults and children annually receive a diagnosis of brain cancer, and the mission of the Foundation is to support research that will improve their quality of life in the physical, social, spiritual, and cognitive areas.
The Foundation develops programs and raises funds for three specific elements in this mission.
- The Tug McGraw Neuro-Oncology Quality of Life Research Center at Duke and grants to other medical and research institutions in the United States
- Public awareness and education activities promoting knowledge and understanding of brain cancer and related issues
- The Diamond 45 Scholarship Program for collegiate scholars
Make a WIsh grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions .
