Reconnected 2022

Join us as we officially launch the newest book by Dawn Standera, ReConnected: SDawn Standera, Ependymoma Survivor, Thriver, Author an Advocatetories from Spinal Cord Tumor Patients.  

It has been a labor of love and dedication for Dawn Standera to introduce us to her own, personal story of surviving a spinal cord tumor diagnosis. In this latest work, Dawn has compiled stories from other spinal cord tumor survivors (and thrivers) to help others affected by these rare tumors feel less alone, and see themselves in these stories.

Help us raise awareness of these rare tumors while we raise funding for further research of causes, patient therapies and rehabilitation.
