Gweneviere Mann Foundation
 

Our Mission:

Save Lives.

The Gweneviere Mann Foundation  (GMF) was created to honor the memory of Gweneviere Mann, an accomplished musician, writer and marathon runner who overcame a brain tumor only to ten years later lose a battle with a rare form of lung cancer. Throughout her life, Gweneviere was committed to learning and growing as an artist and athlete — and always thriving. GMF is dedicated to helping more people get scanned for brain tumor and lung cancer early so that they can thrive in life like Gweneviere did.
