The Legacy Brain Foundation established the Legacy Grant which is open to any brain or spinal cord tumor patient living in the state of Texas who requires financial assistance for treatment. Grants have been given to patients for MRI scans, medication costs, travel for medical care, and other financial costs of treatment.Some of the most effective treatments are very expensive and can be denied by insurance because they are considered experimental.
The Legacy Brain Foundation has also established the Legacy Brain Tumor Scholarship. Children of brain tumor patients in Texas are eligible and encouraged to apply for this scholarship.
The Legacy Brain Foundation hosts a large fundraising event each year, as well as a Celebration of Life luncheon to honor brain tumor survivors. There are also other fundraising events throughout the year organized by individuals who donate the proceeds to Legacy Brain Foundation.
Our Mission is to support patients with brain or spinal cord tumors in their communities through public awareness, education, grants and services; creating a better quality of life for patients and their families.
Many brain tumor patients face financial hardship during the course of their illness, therefore the Legacy Brain Foundation established the Legacy Grant which is open to any brain or spinal cord tumor patient living in the state of Texas who requires financial assistance for treatment.

Dear Legacy Brain Foundation,
Thank you, yet again, for the generous scholarship. In the midst of my most stressful semester in college, your gift was so encouraging to me!
