2nd Annual Brains Matter Conference Brings Together National Brain Tumor Experts to the Pacific Northwest
Date:8/28/2013

ent: “It is an amazing opportunity for the brain tumor community, offering up-close and personal access to national and local brain tumor specialists; it allows for those experiencing brain cancer or a brain tumor right now to ask questions in a small group setting and get immediate information. This is definitely an extraordinary day of learning and hope in the Northwest,” says Cheng.

The conference offers those affected by brain cancer to learn about the latest advancements in brain tumor treatment for adults and children, clinical trials offered on the West Coast, nutritional support for the brain tumor patient, support for patients and caregivers and a space to connect with others in the brain tumor community. The event is made possible through generous support from Genentech, Novocure, and The Bellevue Club.
