On December 11, 2014, the day before Dr.  Liliana Goumnerova operated on her, young violinists from Vermont came to the hospital to help her finish the concert. Sohie (her tumor completely removed) and the violinists  were back on Friday for an anniversary concert of celebration and giving back – and a finale with Dr. Goumnerova on the keyboard. 

Dr. Liliana Goumnerova, Chief of Pediatric Neuro-Oncological Surgery at Boston Children's Hospital / Dana Farber Cancer Institute / Harvard Medical School holds a very special place in our Team Jack family.  

As chemotherapy and radiation treatments continue to receive the bulk of the research investment, there is a third aspect of brain tumor treatment that must not be forgotten about. Recognizing the unique position that the Team Jack Foundation is in to make a permanent and substantial difference in the fight against pediatric brain cancer, one of the top pediatric neurosurgeons in the world has developed an exciting research initiative which includes the development of a surgical instrument that is certain to change the landscape of not only pediatric brain cancer surgery, but also adult brain tumor surgeries, and eventually all cancer surgeries.  We have committed $500,000 to help fund this cutting-edge research project, and will serve as one of the lead Foundations in helping raise additional funds for this important research.
