People affected by glioblastoma share their experiences, worries, treatments, and hopes with us. The opportunity to connect patients and loved ones is immense, and together we're building a movement.

That’s why International Brain Tumour Awareness Week (October 26-November 2) is so important. OurBrainBank receives many requests from patients and researchers worldwide, keen to work together to improve lives.

OurBrainBank Founder Jessica Morris was a guest at the International Brain Tumour Alliance 2019 World Summit of Brain Tumour Patient Advocates, held at NIH last month, where she met advocates from India, Zimbabwe, Japan, Poland, New Zealand, Canada, the UK and other countries. Stay tuned for big news about OurBrainBank in the UK and Australia!

We’re working every day to make glioblastoma — the deadliest of brain tumours — treatable, not terminal. Help us make our mission a reality by donating and spreading the word about OurBrainBank.


Jessica Morris is opening the first-ever Glioblastoma Drug Development Summit in Boston in December. She’ll address a group of key GBM researchers and biopharma experts about her experience as an impatient patient and how new treatments are essential now. Also presenting is Dr. Chiocca, Neurosurgeon-in-Chief at Brigham & Women's Hospital who is operating on Jessica this week (so you know he's the best).


OurBrainBank will have a table at SNO2019, the Society of NeuroOncology annual meeting and we’re hosting an early evening event on Saturday Nov. 23, please join us if you’re attending.

Are you part of our 600-person strong GBM patient and caregivers Facebook group? We have a new mentoring program where you can give and get support, whether you’re newly diagnosed or a long-term survivor.

We’re redesigning our website and seeking stories and photos (or videos) from GBM patients and caregivers, please message us if you’d like to add your voice. 

Keep up with Jessica’s latest treatments on our YouTube channel

With warmest regards from the OurBrainBank team:
Martha, Jessica & Aurelia
