The American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) is the nation’s oldest nonprofit organization dedicated to brain tumor education, support, and research. Forty-five years ago, in 1973, the ABTA was founded by two mothers determined to find answers that, at the time, were not yet available. Since then, the ABTA has funded more than $30 million in brain tumor research and now reaches a national audience, providing educational and support resources. Learn More about ABTA
Over 700,000 Americans are living with a brain tumor today.
Bella Mente was first inspired by Ted Bohnert, husband of Wine Guide Lori Stryker, and all those who’ve been impacted by brain tumors and brain cancer. Ted was diagnosed in 2014. Within 10 months, he lost his life to this devastating disease. But during his battle, Ted volunteered to participate in as many phase zero experimental clinical trials and research programs as he could, knowing that although his involvement would not benefit him, it could save others in the future. In support of Lori, we wanted to continue Ted’s fight. Bella Mente was first released in 2015 and has since raised nearly $90,000 to support ABTA.
