JTHF Revamps Online Presence

The Jeffrey Thomas Hayden Foundation has revamped its online presence in order to raise awareness about pediatric brain tumor research. JTHF donors and volunteers play a substantial role in the fight against pediatric brain tumors. Non-profit organizations are imperative for cancer research. By taking on a more prominent role online, JTHF seeks to raise awareness and money for pediatric cancer research. Take a few moments to check out the foundation’s new website layout along with our various social media outlets. We thank you for your continued support in the fight against cancer!
