THANK YOU to everyone who gave last Tuesday. We raised thousands in one day! It's not too late to make a donation.

Jessica's niece, Alice Morris, reflects on climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise funds for OurBrainBank:

It's been 8 weeks since my boyfriend Harry and I started our trek up the highest mountain in Africa. So much has happened since then... With the world reeling from a global pandemic, humanity is having to dig deep to find resilience — something my aunt Jessica is very accustomed to. Everyone will need some of Jess's spirit in the next few months because, let's be honest, out of anyone, she could conquer Kilimanjaro ten times over!

Join our VOICES call TODAY (Tuesday May 12th) at 12pm ET. Jessica is hosting the call, and we'll talk about becoming an OurBrainBank patient ambassador. GBM patients and carers welcome. Write us to get a calendar invite or join our Facebook group


A big shout out to Colin Gerner of StacheStrongour VOICES video chat special guest last week. Colin spoke movingly about his brother GJ and how his family formed StacheStrong. 
Our featured patient this week is the unstoppable Lynn Oxenberg.

Lynn's ordeal started with a persistent headache, then a seizure. And then the dreaded diagnosis of GBM. But today this dynamic Pennsylvania resident is dancing again! Lynn is a strong advocate of the Optune device. Read more about Lynn
