Here is a real life example of why The Elliott Foundation makes a huge impact on the lives of brain cancer patients, their families, and their caregivers.
My name is Lynne Tran and I wanted to thank you for inviting me to UCSD medical center to meet Dr. Samtosh Kesari the Director of Neuro-Oncology and his staff. Honestly, I was a bit nervous and anxious before the meeting because I had no idea what to expect. I can say that all of that disappeared when I formally meet you, Dellann and The Elliott Foundation.
I was amazed to learn so much about brain cancer in a short time frame. Dr. Kesari has done such amazing work within neuro-oncology that I did not even know existed.
Another thing I learned is that taking part in clinical research can always benefit a patient because an extra set of eyes will watch over you while participating in the clinical research. Not only that, but tumors have been shown to decrease in some of these clinical trials. Now, I am on board to have my brother participate in a trial with Dr. Kesari and his team.
Throughout this past year and a half, it has been hard to find someone who truly cares and is willing to help. My brother was diagnosed with giloblastma multiforme at the age of 19. He had perfect health prior to the cancer. We are so grateful to have found The Elliott Foundation because now my family knows that there are people that care and who are willing to help with vital information and support.
I am urging all of you who read my testimony to go online today at CEF/TEF’s donation page and donate so that this organization can continue ot provide education and awareness to the public and assist with provding direct access to advanced brain tumor treatments nationally. Thank you for supporting the CEF/TEF so that they can broaden their outreach and continue to assist more and more brain tumor patients and their caregivers. Thank you for BEING PART OF THE CURE!
