Dear Friends,

As the year comes to a close, I’m reflecting on gratitude. I’m grateful to be alive during this extraordinary time and for the tremendous support I receive from the OurBrainBank community — all of you. 

It’ll soon be five years since my glioblastoma diagnosis — a significant milestone because only five percent of people living with GBM survive more than five years. We’re committed to changing this devastating statistic and turning GBM into a treatable — not terminal — disease. 

Today, December 1st is GivingTuesday and we’re launching our #GiveUsFive campaign.

When you #GiveUsFive, it’ll help us:
  1. Improve the OurBrainBank app and the data we’re collecting
  2. Support more patients and carers, including video chats with experts like Dr. Jeffrey Rediger of Harvard Medical School
  3. Expand — OurBrainBank is now part of a clinical trial in Australia
  4. Advocate for patients by promoting the GBM Bill of Rights
  5. Partner with other organizations to amplify our impact

Five ways to #GiveUsFive:
  1. Commit to giving $5 a month
  2. Give a one-off donation of $5, $55, $555 — whatever you can afford
  3. Start a sponsored 5K run (or walk or danceathon, whatever!)
  4. Give us a high five! Share five OurBrainBank social media posts
  5. Tell five friends about OurBrainBank 

We’re a start-up nonprofit with a shoe-string budget; every dollar counts.

Thank you.
