Juliana Schafer Spirit of Hope Award

Nominations Now Open! Deadline: June 30, 2022

The Juliana Schafer Spirit of Hope Award is designed to recognize and honor individuals who have generously donated their time and talents to further the mission of the ABTA through their volunteer efforts.

Volunteerism comes in many forms, and no act of service is too small. The ABTA volunteer network is a large and growing movement of passionate individuals from across the country working together to make a difference in the brain tumor community. Volunteers play an integral part in supporting programs and research initiatives that are helping those impacted by brain tumors.

From 2004, when Juliana Schafer was diagnosed with a brain tumor, to her peaceful passing in 2021, Juliana was an incredibly active and tireless volunteer for the ABTA. Juliana was passionate about the ABTA’s mission, from the patient and caregiver resources provided to the funding of cutting-edge research. Juliana, her family, and her friends were continually inspired to fundraise and increase awareness of the ABTA. Even from her hospice bed, Juliana was on her phone, raising money through her Breakthrough for Brain Tumors 5K (BT5K) team, aptly named Team Hope. The pride she took in those efforts brought her comfort to the very end. In recognition of Juliana’s extraordinary volunteer efforts, the ABTA has established the Juliana Schafer Spirit of Hope Award.
