This is my friend and colleague Jessica Morris who has glioblastoma, a deadly form of brain cancer. She started an impressive nonprofit effort, OurBrainBank, and I'm proud to be employee #1.
We're collecting data and sharing it with researchers. We're also encouraging researchers — academic and commercial — to share their data. We want to help connect research silos and collect massive amounts of data on GBM — unless you're treated at a major center or enter a clinical trial, no one is looking at your data. We work with doctors and scientists at places like Harvard Medical School and Columbia University, as well as fellow non-profits.
We also support people living with GBM and their loved ones and advocate for better treatments. Check out our GBM Bill of Rights.
Your gift will help fund our essential work. Thank you!
