American Brain Tumor Association

The American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) is the nation’s oldest nonprofit organization dedicated to brain tumor education, support, and research. In 1973, the ABTA was started by two mothers (one being Liz’s mother, Susan Kramer) who were determined to find answers that were not available at the time. For the past 45 years, the ABTA has been providing comprehensive resources that support the complex needs of brain tumor patients and caregivers, as well as the critical funding of research in the pursuit of breakthroughs in brain tumor diagnosis, treatment, and care.
