OUR GOAL

Our Goal– A World Without Brain Tumors and Cancers

Garo Yepremian’s late daughter-in-law, Debby, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor (intrinsic brainstem glioma) in 1998. Unfortunately, after greatly outliving her doctors’ prognoses of six months to live, Debby’s battle came to an end in 2004. The Garo Yepremian Foundation was founded in 2001 to fight this disease.

In May of 2014, Garo was diagnosed with multiple brain tumors caused by high grade neuroendocrine cancer. Unfortunately, Garo lost his battle with this rare form of cancer on May 15, 2015.

Mission Statement: The Garo Yepremian Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable corporation dedicated to raising funds for brain tumor and brain cancer research.
