It truly does take a community of patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals and supporters to help advance the mission of the American Brain Tumor Association. With that in mind, we developed the ABTA CommYOUnity™, a nationwide grassroots volunteer network, where YOU are the center of all that we do. We are proud to have the first nationwide brain tumor volunteer network dedicated to serving the brain tumor population and cause by extending the ABTA's reach to more people, in more places and in more meaningful ways.
By joining the ABTA CommYOUnity™, you will be part of a large and growing movement consisting of passionate individuals from across the country working together to make an impact in the brain tumor community.
Your personal talents will make an impact and you can choose volunteer activities that match what interests you most with the ability to have flexible scheduling.

Ashlie Thornbury is a member of our CommYOUnity™ Volunteer Network and has been part of the ABTA’s volunteer fundraising event program, Breakthrough Your Way, since 2007. Ashlie host’s Amy’s Walk, which celebrates life with a 5-mile walk in Philadelphia, PA in memory of her aunt, Amy Masiejczyk, who passed away from a brain tumor at just 39 years old. Since organizing this event 10 years ago, the walk has raised almost $40,000 for the ABTA.
“It brings us all together,” Ashlie says, “We want to keep her memory alive and do something positive while helping other people suffering from this terrible disease.”
Ashlie continues to advocate for the ABTA at the local level and serves on ABTA’s new Volunteer Advisory Council.
