Making a Difference in
the Fight Against Pediatric Brain
The Jeffrey Thomas Hayden Foundation
is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit
organization founded in September
2004 by Timothy and Cynthia Hayden.
In January 2004, their 12 year old
son, Jeffrey, was diagnosed with an
inoperable malignant brain tumor
knows as a diffuse intrinsic pontine
The Foundation goals include
supporting research efforts to find
a cure for this and all types of
pediatric brain tumors, and to
provide parents with the latest
information to help them make the
best decision for their children.
JTHF relies on volunteers and
donors to help fulfill our mission.
We are always happy to have new
volunteers and we gladly accept
donations and charitable
contributions of any kind for our
events and activities.
