The Jeffrey Thomas Hayden Foundation is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in September 2004. The mission of JTHF is to increase awareness about pediatric brain tumors, specifically diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma tumors, and to take a proactive approach to raising money to support pediatric cancer research. Our interactive and informative web site strives to provide the most up to date information in regards to DIPG research and fundraising efforts.
JTHF relies on volunteers and donors to help fulfill our mission to find a cure to pediatric cancer. We are always happy to have new volunteers and we gladly accept charitable contributions. 100% of proceeds will play a role in the fight against pediatric cancer. The majority of proceeds help fund the DIPG Registry, which is located within Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Other proceeds help us host our various events and continue to fund the Postdoctoral Endowed Fellowship Fund in Pediatric Brain Tumor Research at The Ohio State University Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and the Richard L. Solove Research Institute. We appreciate any and all contributions. Click on our “About us” section to learn more about DIPG tumors and Jeffrey’s story.
