Hello from OurBrainBank founder, Jessica Morris

I'm still in the fight, battling to deal with this disease and really at the cutting-edge of medicine... But sitting out here on a Saturday afternoon in the oasis of our garden is such a joy. Finding points of light when things are a bit grim, surrounded by my loving famiy and friends. Which means you guys.

What you told us

For Glioblastoma Awareness Day, we asked patients and carers to share their real life experiences. Our survey revealed the urgent need for an improved standard of care — like the overwhelming lack of psychological support as shown here. Read the survey results and take it yourself.

We love this brilliant analogy from a carer: 

Here's how I feel about our medical team: our oncologist is playing for the Rams, our radiation oncologist is playing for the Seahawks, and our NO is playing for the Eagles. We lost our offensive coordinator (surgeon) after he called in the play. My husband is the quarterback (GBM warrior) and his helmet earpiece is on the blink. I am trying to be the cheerleader, the water boy, and statistician. Where the hell is the coach?

Next steps: staging an education and awareness campaign about the GBM Bill of Rights for doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, and lawmakers.
Karen Bruett has words of wisdom for caregivers; lessons she learned after her husband Mike sadly lost his battle with GBM.

LIVE — in between treatments, figure out what you can handle and then DO IT! Travel. Eat. Play. Laugh. Spend time with family and friends.
