Donate to Brain and Spinal Tumors Research, Patient Care and Education

Nearly 25,000 adults will be diagnosed with brain and spinal cord tumors in 2019. While this diagnosis can be overwhelming to patients and their families, teams of board-certified

physicians at Northwestern Medicine are dedicated to providing comprehensive care using state of the art technologies to provide the best possible results. Testing for early detection allows our compassionate teams to develop treatment options to best combat the spread of brain and spinal cancers. Thanks to your generous donations to the Northwestern Memorial Foundation, we are able to advance clinical trials and research aimed at providing new diagnostic and treatment options for our patients.

Conveniently located throughout the greater Chicago metropolitan area, our modern facilities welcome patients and their families as treatment plans are developed and delivered. As the largest team of specialists dedicated to spinal and brain tumors in Illinois, we are committed to providing resources and education for the entire family as part of our comprehensive treatment of those diagnosed with brain and spinal cancers.  Our specialists include neurologists, neurological oncologists, highly trained nurses and social workers. Some of the more prevalent forms of brain and spinal cancers include brain tumors, Chordomas, Glioblastomas and tumors of the spine.

Treatment programs are designed based on results from blood tests, x-rays and CAT scans, MRIs and biopsies. Our specialists use a combination of infusion therapies, chemotherapies, radiation and surgical extraction of tumors. We are also focused on our patients’ mental health and energy levels as they endure treatments that can often result in difficult symptoms. Pain management and palliative care are an integral part of the treatment program at Northwestern Medicine.
