The ChadTough Foundation – whose mission is to fund research and raise awareness for Pediatric Brain Tumors was inspired by the passing of a special little boy, Chad Carr. On September 23rd, 2014, Chad was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). Three days later, he spent his 4th birthday in the Coach Carr Unit of Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan (The Coach Carr Unit is named after Chad’s grandfather, former University of Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr). Chad would undergo 30 rounds of radiation at Mott, and then participate in a clinical trial at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. He bravely fought for 14 months before gaining his angel wings on November 23, 2015. Multiple donors have committed $30 million to establish the Chad Carr Pediatric Brain Tumor Center at the University of Michigan, an initiative to advance research and treatment for children with brain cancer.
