Event Details

The Chris Elliott Fund is presenting, for the 2nd year, a conference for patient and caregivers in the brain cancer and brain tumor communities.  The conference is available for patients and caregivers affected by brain cancer being offered free of charge. This event directly benefits the community of brain cancer patients, caregivers and families in the Pacific Northwest.


The event includes presentations and individual breakout sessions with renowned brain cancer and brain tumor specialists and offers a complimentary lunch. Space is limited to the one-day event and available free of charge to 200 brain tumor patients, caregivers, family members and those seeking information about brain cancer.


Last year’s first annual event was well received event by experts and patients alike. Attendees of the event agreed it provided hope for those caring for or fighting the aggressive disease, as described by one conference attendee at last year’s event, Philip Onghai from Texas: “This is the first time that I’ve been optimistic and have had HOPE for my wife since she was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2010.” 

About Speakers

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.
