Dear Friend of PHBF,

Thank you for helping us reach $325,000 in funded research since we started in 2012. In the past year, we funded the nation’s first machine that genetically classifies brain tumors to personalize treatment strategies for both clinical care and research. We continue as a foundational partner with the DIPG Collaborative. We organized and funded the 5th annual Family Camp Day for neuro-oncology patients and their families, offered financial support to families in need, and supported the Tony Merk Scholarship for the 6th year. We couldn’t do any of this without YOU!


We and the families we serve appreciate your generosity thus far. Please keep us in mind with your end-of-the-year giving. We look forward to doing even more in the coming year-bringing continued HOPE to families with a childbattling brain cancer.


Please go to,
or follow us on Facebook or Twitter to learn more about our
mission and how you can help!
With HOPE and appreciation,
Rick and Lynne Merk, Co-founders
