Seattle, WA (PRWEB) October 28, 2013

The Chris Elliott Fund(CEF) hosted their second annual Doctor’s Dinner on Thursday, September 26th at the Bellevue Club in Bellevue, WA.

The Chris Elliott Fund staff, board members, and development team were also in attendance.

Dellann Elliott Mydland, President and Founder of CEF expressed the importance of the doctor’s dinner in their mission, “the Chris Elliott Fund truly hopes to turn the dial up on getting rid of this disease and we accomplish this through our many initiatives. One such initiative is our doctor’s dinner, bringing together doctors and experts in a forum that allows them to speak, collaborate and share information in a patient and caregiver context.”

The individuals that were able to attend the dinner included:
Manmeet Ahluwalia, MD, FACP, Section Head, Neuro-Oncology Outcomes, The Rose Ella Burkhardt Brain Tumor and Neuro-Oncology Center, Neurological Institute, Cleveland Clinic
Patrick Y. Wen, MD, Director, Center For Neuro-Oncology, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School

Cheryl Broyles, 12-year GBM Brain Tumor Survivor, Rejoicing in Hope

Dellann Elliott offered that this event will kick-start a year-long project in 2014 to hold several conferences in several cities across the United States for this exact purpose of generating information and collaboration around the brain tumor patient and caregiver.

This is an annual event held in concert with the group’s brain cancer patient and caregiver conference. The event is made possible through generous support from the Cecil E. Jenks Fund, Novocure, Genentech and The Bellevue Club. For inquiries and more information about the event go to http://www.chriselliottfund.org or call 1-800-574-5703.
