Chris Elliott Fund Hosts 2nd Annual Conference, Providing Hope to Brain Cancer and Brain Tumor Patients and Caregivers
Date:10/29/2013

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) October 29, 2013

The Chris Elliott Fund (CEF) hosted the second annual Brains Matter Patient and Caregiver Conference and Awareness Day, on Friday, September 27th at the Bellevue Club in Bellevue, WA.

This conference was available for patients and caregivers affected by brain cancer free of charge. This event directly benefits the community of brain cancer patients, caregivers and families in the Pacific Northwest, as well as brings patients from all over the United States.

In feedback from the conference, many patients expressed gratitude regarding the conference. One of the most valuable offerings of the conference are the breakout sessions with the conference speakers. “This has proved to be one of the most valuable aspects of the conference” offered Dellann Elliott Mydland, President of CEF. One caregiver offered: “breakout sessions were my favorite part of the conference, we had such an informational time…it was way more than a third opinion. We were so grateful for their accessible explanations.”

Another caregiver in attendance offered that the conference is "a reminder that there is always hope, even though the statistics don’t represent that. Seeing and hearing form long-term survivors is invaluable!”

The event includes presentations and individual breakout sessions with renowned brain cancer and brain tumor specialists. The event offered a complimentary lunch and breakout sessions with each of the speakers to allow for open discussion on the current experiences and needs of patients and caregivers with experts in the field.

Speakers included Dr. Patrick Wen who spoke about targeted treatments
