For more than 20 years, Bryce Neier has been an attorney at The Law Office of Bryce D. Neier PLLC in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Bryce Neier has been involved in several cases involving international child abduction and child custody, and has successfully litigated many of these cases involving but not limited to: Canada, Columbia South America, Germany, Japan, Portugal, and Spain. In addition to his legal work he supports a number of charitable organizations, including the Comprehensive Cancer Center at St. Jude.

Several programs exist at the St. Jude’s Cancer Center to help research cancer as it relates to children. One is the Neurobiology and Brain Tumor Program (NBTP). Brain tumors are not unusual in children, especially for those younger than 15 years of age. Out of all childhood cancers, brain tumors make up 20 percent. The NBTP program strives to research the biology of malignant and normal growths that occur in the nervous system.

Additional goals for this program include developing less invasive treatments to fight childhood brain tumors and developing interventions that will reduce the neuropsychological effects that can potentially happen from having and surviving the disease.
