The Caroline Fund is a nonprofit organization in support of brain cancer research and is exempt from taxation under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. 

The Caroline Fund was established in 2013 in memory of Caroline Vandemark, 22 of Caldwell, NJ, who lost her life to the most aggressive form of brain cancer, glioblastoma multiforme. The Caroline Fund team stands by the belief that positivity cures! This stems from the positive attitude that radiated from Caroline in all that she did.

The Caroline Fund seeks to raise funds and awareness to support the cutting-edge brain and spine tumor research that is preformed by Caroline's neuro-oncologists and surgeons at the John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey. The positive and lasting impact that Caroline left with their team led the Hackensack UMC Foundation to name the Caroline Vandemark Fund for Brain and Spine Tumor Research in her memory. Donations made to the Caroline Fund directly benefit this research. 


Since 2013, the Caroline Fund has contributed over a quarter of a million dollars to directly support this research. 


As a passionate tight-knit group of Caroline's family and friends, the Caroline Fund's mission is to remember those we have lost and support those who are suffering. Together, we can raise awareness and funds to conquer cancer. We will not go quietly, we will not back down. Positivity cures!
