Our Mission: To promote awareness of brain tumors and the need for effective treatments.

Brains Together For a Cure (BTFC) was founded in 2007 when Shelly Kuhlmann, whose husband was battling a severely aggressive brain tumor called glioblastoma multiforme, met and befriended Sue Steinmetz, a clinical research coordinator for the Neuro-Oncology Department at the Mayo Clinic. Shelly and Sue, both passionate about the brain tumor community, recognized unmet needs for advocacy and support in Southeastern Minnesota. Together, along with the help of Sue Hruska, Faith Omberg, and Deb Sprau, they started BTFC to provide assistance to brain tumor survivors and their families and to ultimately find a cure for the disease by raising grant funds for brain tumor research.
