Nicole BahenIf you've ever doubted how quickly your life can be turned upside down, just ask the Bahen family. On Monday, Nov. 14, 2000, the Bahens' 5-year-old daughter Nicole joined her friends for her usual afternoon dance class. By Sunday Nov. 20, Nicole lay in intensive care recovering from surgery, unable to speak, roll over or swallow, nearly paralyzed on her right side. Such is the swift devastation of a pediatric brain tumor.

Brain Tumor Research

Brain injury resulting in learning disorders, epilepsy, ataxia or paralysis commonly results from tumor growth or from treatments such as surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy that can cure the majority of certain types of pediatric brain tumors.
