The Kortney Rose Foundation (KRF) is a 501(c)(3) organization that was set up by Kortney’s parents as a way to help channel their grief into something positive. Their hopes are to make a difference, in Kortney’s name, in the fight to find better treatments and ultimately a cure for pediatric brain tumors. Our fundraising efforts will directly benefit pediatric brain tumor research.
