2021 HIGHLIGHTS
The Brooke Healey Foundation had a productive 2021! Here are some highlights:
  • Raised $168,000 during our sold out 7th Annual Golf Outing.

  • Raised $70,000 in lieu of our 7th Annual in person Casino Night Gala.

  • Donated $125,000 towards research including contributing $65,000 to the DIPG/DMG Collaborative, a collection of foundations with the common interest of inspiring research into the cure of DIPG with the belief that this cure could lead to a homerun cure for all cancers; $50,000 to our CONNECT partnership (Collaborative Network for Neuro-oncology Clinical Trials), a virtual hospital that removes geographic boundaries for trials and is revolutionizing the way cancer is treated; and $10,000 to the Children's Brain Tumor Project.

  • Donated $35,000 to families battling pediatric cancer; the funds went towards mortgages or rent, car payments, phone bills, groceries, household utilities or other expenses for comfort and fun.

  • Attended the bi-annual DIPG/DMG Collaborative Symposium, this year's event in Houston (see pics above) was the largest ever DIPG/DMG Symposium! The Symposium represents an unparalleled effort of 66 independent foundations and chapters, over 42 doctors/researchers, 5 industry partners and 49 families. Together we have funded nearly $18 million in substantive research, not to mention ongoing future efforts for millions more. It was truly collaboration realized. From this three-day session alone, we expect over $1.2 million in new grants to be generated. Of the event, board member Toni Anthony says, "Magic happens here as doctors, researchers and families work together, report and review fresh findings and discuss the potential of curing DIPG."

  • Raised pediatric cancer awareness in partnership with 36 NJ restaurants and breweries, 7 high school sports teams, 4 fitness instructors and countless volunteers.

  • Awarded $2,000 in scholarships to New Providence, Madison and Cranford students.

  • Received recognition from the New Providence Borough Council, along with a proclamation of pediatric cancer awareness month.

  • Received acknowledgement in the Journal of Neurosurgery for our support of newly published research.

  • Made it through 2021 with continued determination!
