Oligo Brain Cancer Congressional Briefing

Learn from patients, clinicians and advocates about oligodendroglioma and its impact on young adults in their 20s to 40s

June 27, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

Hosted by Oligo Nation

Join us for an online Congressional Briefing on Oligo Brain Cancer where we will have speakers share personal experiences with Oligodendroglioma as well as research gaps and opportunities to develop targeted treatments. This disease overwhelmingly strikes the young in the prime of their lives at 20-40 years of age. It is incurable and no advancements in care have been developed in decades. The time has come to dedicate research funding toward this disease and save lives, so we will close with funding and policy recommendations.

Opening Remarks by:

  • Congressman Jared Huffman (D-CA): Member of the Rare Disease Caucus


  • Clinician-Scientist: Dr. Nader Sanai, Director of the The Ivy Brain Tumor Center in Phoenix
  • Caregiver: Kristen Spain
  • Survivor: Ashley Dabbiere
  • Patient Advocate: Brock Greene
