Brain Cancer * Understanding * Research * Education * Development

B*CURED’s mission is to end brain cancer by funding innovative research grants. To date, B*CURED has awarded 21 grants to investigators searching for a cure for brain cancer at nationally ranked universities and hospitals.

B*CURED is an all-volunteer 501 (c) 3 organization, founded in 2008 by Debbie Needle and Melissa Salamé. B*CURED is run by co-presidents Karena Bailey and Kristin Duda. All money raised goes directly to brain cancer research.

See the launch of B*CURED here at The Indian Harbor Yacht Club in 2008.
