Supporting Cures Through the ChadTough Fund

The work of the Chad Carr Pediatric Brain Tumor Center is made possible through generous contributions to the ChadTough Fund.

Chad Carr, the grandson of former Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr, died at age 5, 15 months after being diagnosed with DIPG – but not before his story captured national attention for brain cancer research and spawned the ChadTough movement.

Today, his memory lives on through groundbreaking research funded through contributions to the ChadTough Fund at the University of Michigan.

You can join the cause and help us improve scientists’ understanding of pediatric brain tumors, develop better treatments, and advance science toward improved survival and cures for children with brain cancer – so that no more families suffer through such a loss without hope.

Your support will fuel our innovative research programs essential to find cures and improve care for children with brain tumors. The impact will be immeasurable. 

The time is now — and Michigan is the place — for conquering DIPG, gliomas and other pediatric brain tumors.

Join us in transforming care for all who are touched by pediatric brain cancer. Become a Victor.
