Founder and President Nancy Thomason lost her 17 month old son, Cade, to a brain stem tumor in February, 2000.  At that time she vowed to fight the disease in honor and memory of her son. 

Nancy founded the Oklahoma Brain Tumor Foundation and began the first support group specifically for brain tumor patients in the State of Oklahoma.  In 2001 Nancy was appointed to a committee with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) for her work as a cancer advocate.  She consults and works with NCI on cancer clinical trials and issues affecting families with brain tumors. 

She has been sought for consultation on Patients Rights issues for grant applications submitted by the Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium and most major cancer treatment centers in the United States for funding amounts in excess of $30 million.
