Brain cancer is the leading cause of death by disease for kids in the United States. Every day, thirteen children are diagnosed with a brain tumor, the deadliest and most common form of pediatric cancer. Less than 4% of federal funding is directed at pediatric cancer research, with only a small fraction of these funds going towards brain tumor research. Family foundations like the Yuvaan Tiwari Foundation are critical to fund targeted and innovative research that will lead to better treatment options and ultimately, a cure.
ABOUT THE YUVAAN TIWARI FOUNDATION
The Yuvaan Tiwari Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was established by Parvati and Satya Tiwari to honor the legacy of their son Yuvaan (Yuvi). At age two, Yuvi was diagnosed with an aggressive and fatal brain tumor called diffuse midline glioma (DMG). Yuvi fought DMG bravely for seven months but passed away on July 30, 2021. The Yuvaan Tiwari Foundation is built on love, hope and an unwavering determination to find a cure for DMG and other deadly pediatric brain tumors. To learn more, visit www.ytfoundation.org.
