You are not alone. Help is available.
The Glioblastoma Support Network is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing resources to caregivers of anyone suffering from an aggressive type of brain cancer known as glioblastoma multiforme. Our organization was founded by a group of caregivers who have walked the same path as many of those who seek assistance. We understand that it feels like you’re “stumbling through the dark” while having to make monumental decisions for a loved one struggling with glioblastoma, one of the most cruel and deadly forms of brain cancer.
Our glioblastoma support network is meant to be a place of information and resources for YOU. The information provided here is meant to offer educational resources and support to guide you on your journey through this difficult time. This information is not meant to be medical advice.

Please donate to the Glioblastoma Support Network. What is glioblastoma? Glioblastoma multiforme is considered a grade IV brain cancer tumor. It is highly malignant, aggressive, and terminal. While treatments exist for glioblastoma at this time, there is no cure. For those diagnosed with glioblastoma, the average life expectancy after diagnosis is 15 months. Those who are supporting them need all the help they can get. Please donate to the Glioblastoma Support Network so we can help those helping others. We are an approved 501c3, and donations are tax-deductible.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of researchers across the globe, we are one step closer each year to breakthroughs in treating—and possibly—eliminating brain cancer and other nervous system cancers. There are a great number of ways to support cancer research, including the National Brain Tumor Society, the American Brain Tumor Association, the American Association for Cancer Research, the National Foundation for Cancer Research, and specifically for the caregivers, spouses, and those widowed by glioblastoma multiforme, you can donate directly to the Glioblastoma Support Network.
