GOING GLOBAL BECAUSE PATIENT NEED IS GLOBAL
OBB UK launched with a huge splash in London last week, and we're thrilled that the OBB app is now available to users in the UK.

Our newest UK trustee, Jana Bennett, a prominent television executive recently diagnosed with GBM, was introduced at the event hosted by Clear Channel Outdoor. She spoke movingly about her GBM journey. Jana's announcement was featured in the Evening StandardDaily Mail and a prized Op-Ed Leader column

Jess Mills (daughter of the late Tessa Jowell) spoke as did Jake Arnold-Forster and William Eccleshare. Jessica Morris joined via screen from Brooklyn. 

Meanwhile all over London, billboards of the extraordinary creative campaign created for us by FleishmanHillard went live. Thanks again to Clear Channel Outdoor.
Jessica Morris opens GBM Drug Summit

This week in Boston is the first ever GBM Drug Development Summit. When the organizers asked Jessica for input, she noted that the patient voice was missing... so they invited her to be the opening speaker!

Her fantastic speech: "Living with Glioblastoma: a License to be Ambitious" was an excellent start to this vital conference aimed at accelerating the delivery of effective therapies to patients in need.

A host of expert speakers include Dr. E. Antonio Chiocca, PhD, Chair of the Department of Neurosurgery at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center — where Jessica is currently enrolled in a new trial using the herpes virus to treat the tumor.
