GLENN GARCELON FOUNDATION

Empowering and Supporting Brain Tumor Patients

The Glenn Garcelon Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which exists to improve the quality of life of brain tumor survivors, caregivers and their families by providing emotional and financial support.

Your donations help us continue our important work. During the past eleven years we have awarded 571 grants. This would not have been possible without your support. 

Please take a few minutes to view this wonderful video featuring a few of our grant recipients.

Mission

To empower and support brain tumor patients and their families by awarding grants to help with expenses that are beyond their means. Our goal is to ease some of the financial burden that often adds to the stress of a brain tumor diagnosis and treatment. This allows patients and their caregivers to focus, with less distraction, on treatment and quality time with loved ones.

Vision

To be fierce in our pursuit to support brain tumor patients and families in physical, emotional, and financial need.

Values

Empowerment    ~    Empathy    ~    Integrity    ~    Compassion    ~    Commitment

MEET GRANT RECIPIENT
MICHELLE

Michelle was a television producer in Atlanta and her husband was an attorney.  They were raising two children and life was good.  Then in 2015, Michelle began experiencing headaches and cognitive issues.  An MRI revealed a Meningioma brain tumor.  While she was recovering from surgery, her husband walked out on the family.

Michelle was left to raise two children on her own while dealing with the life-changing effects of the tumor and trying to figure out how to survive.

The road has not been an easy one.  Too many people believe that if you have a benign brain tumor, you are perfectly fine.  That is far from the truth.  A benign tumor can cause the same, and, at times, more severe deficits than a malignant tumor.  Michelle struggles every day with severe headaches, musculoskeletal pain, balance issues, and cognitive problems. She works very hard to do as much for herself as possible in regards to normal daily activities and to improve her quality of life. 

 

But Michelle is a survivor!  She has raised two incredible children:  Dailen is pursuing his PhD in Physical Therapy and Dejai will be heading off to college in the fall.  Michelle resolved long ago to make the best of what she has been dealt and her positive attitude and strong faith are so very impressive and inspiring.

We salute you, Michelle!
