The need for collaboration and connection has never been greater. Please join us!
We're experiencing unprecedented interest from patients, carers, and families keen to help. The brain tumor community is working together and stronger than ever. 

We want to highlight important collaborations by our friends the Society for Neuro-Oncology, the International Brain Tumour Alliance and the National Brain Tumor Society.

SNO and the IBTA want to know about your experience during this pandemic. They created a Covid-19 SURVEY for brain cancers patients & carers. By taking the survey, you’ll add valuable data to the understanding of brain tumors and Covid-19. Deadline is April 30th. Please add your voice

You can also urge government to address the shortage in personal protective equipment for health care workers. This initiative is from the NBTS and SNO: sign the petition.

OBB on BBC’s Today Show 
Our fantastic spring UK fundraiser had to be postponed because of the current  crisis. This was terribly disappointing, but (without getting all silver-lining on you), we're pleased that OBB will be on the popular BBC Radio 4 Today in "the show must go on" segment near the end. Acclaimed pianist Caroline Clemmow, will talk about OBB and play a song. 

GBM Stories
We have a new feature on GBM Stories. OBB Trustee Jana Bennett writes about her personal D-Day: D for DiagnosisLet us know if you'd like to be profiled. 

Early diagnosis is key to urgent treatment. My main message: be aware of your body and brain.

— Jana Bennett
