Semmy Foundation’s mission is to prolong the life expectation and outcome for kids with a brainstem tumor (brainstem glioma) through scientific research. Current survival rate is practically 0%, and survival past 12 months after diagnosis is uncommon. In contrast, the average survival rate for other types of childhood cancer has improved to 75% in recent years. We have to get rid of the 0%!
Every year the Semmy Foundation donates € 300,000 for scientific research to VUmc, University Medical Center Amsterdam. With even more donations, more resources can be dedicated to research on brainstem glioma, and earlier results can be expected. Together we can help children with brainstem glioma sooner!
