Grants & Scholarships


​Many brain tumor patients face financial hardship during the course of their illness. Some of the most effective treatments are very expensive and can be denied by insurance because they are considered experimental.

​Due to this burden, 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. Realizing that the expenses associated with brain tumor treatments may exhaust a family's resources and can thus hinder their children’s ability to seek higher education, 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.
