Make a tax-deductible gift to the Upper Michigan Brain Tumor Center

Help us gain a greater understanding of the devastating brain tumor diseases by funding research at our center. Your support will not only help advance the treatment of brain tumor, it will also go toward the training of future cancer scientists and clinicians who we hope will be the ones to eradicate cancer.

The UMBTC prides itself on training future clinicians and scientists while conducting cutting edge brain tumor research. Contributions to the UMBTC (earmarked donations via the NMU Foundation, participation in the Hope Starts Here Challenge), support the training of students and the advancement of our research. These gifts assist in the areas of our strongest needs, the consumables and reagents needed for these endeavors. These funds have also helped with the purchase of surgical tools for the O.R., assist families getting to clinical trials, and fund research on the quality of life of care givers. 

Thank you for the support! 

Please note that the Tumor Biomarkers Program and the Tumor Diagnostics/Imaging Program funding pages are no longer active. Please check back later or consider contributing to a different need.
