A Partnership with NYU Langone Medical Center
In 2004, Dr. Allen and his Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Program team found a new home at the New York University (NYU) Langone Medical Center. Making Headway Foundation now works closely with this hospital and its Stephen D. Hassenfeld Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders.


Making Headway Today
What began as a small cluster of parents helping parents has expanded to include increasing numbers of friends, families, contributors and survivors who consider themselves part of the Making Headway family. Their dedication enables Making Headway to increase, expand and enhance quality-of-life services at the hospital, to reach more families in the community and to envision and more fully realize Making Headway's role in the care, comfort and cure of children diagnosed with a brain or spinal cord tumor.

Today, children, siblings, parents and doctors rely on Making Headway to counter fear and discomfort with laughter and love; to replace confusion and bewilderment with understanding; and to make headway through each impasse to a place where the joy of being a child and the joy of being a parent are nurtured and shared.
