About The Tumornators

The Tumornators is a fundraising team started by the Leathers/Cone family in conjunction with the Children’s Tumor Foundation that is dedicated to raising money and awareness to end. Neurofibromatosis (NF) and Schwannomatosis through research.

On Christmas Eve 2006 while driving back to Georgia from one of Drew’s many surgeries at Johns Hopkins Hospital, the family decided to take a more active role in Drew’s illness. The foundation was born February 2007 when they put together a compelling slideshow telling Drew’s story that, accompanied by a heartfelt song written by Drew’s brother, Ben, appeared on the newly-formed web site.

boyspresurgeryThanks to the generosity of people like you, the grassroots campaign has raised over $100,000 to date through fundraisers, donations and with the help of friends like Atlanta Braves right fielder Jeff Francoeur and former NFL player Matt Stinchcomb and New Orleans Saint, Jon Stinchcomb.

All funds raised are donated directly to the Children’s Tumor Foundation so that Drew and others like him can live a life free of the devastating impact of tumors.

  1. Now, if you can give one to NASA, have them take it to the space station, then can say its been out of this world.

  2. These guys are so cool.

  3. Lou, Thanks. I mean that. Thanks.

  4. Well now I believe you have visitors from all the continents of the world. Antartica was the last holdout.
    Thanks Chad for sending the great picture and welcome.

    Be sure to update your map Reggie!

  5. You’re not too far off! George Haddad who ran for a cure for NF in Antarctica too is a rocket scientist at NASA! I doubt George has enough sway to get something into space though. 🙂

  6. I think you’re right, Bart!

    Now I’d like to work on all countries that start with the letter “R”.

  7. Joe, maybe just a picture of the shirt, or of reggie wearing it. It’s not brain surgery, but it is rocket science.

    Reggie, I’ll score Tanzania for you next Fall.

  8. Dang, you can find out anything with Google, Bing, etc.

    191 Reunion
    192 Romania
    193 Russia
    194 Rwanda

    I’m not going to set foot in Rwanda though

    there seem to be 257 countries in the world so you’re more than half way there.
    Gotta go to my day job now.
    Ciao for now.

  9. All sound great to me. I bet before next year we will have a blog post saying that Reggie goes to, and it will have one of the countries listed above.

  10. Happy Easter weekend to all.
