We are pleased to announce that former 7NBC Anchor/Health Reporter Janet Wu will emcee our Golf & Tennis Fundraiser on September 18 at the Oyster Harbors Club. Please join us for a day of sport and fun as we support vital brain tumor research.

“While great advances have been made in brain tumor research revealing their complexities and causes, there is considerably more work to be done to provide therapies. I am honored to support the work of the Brain Science Foundation to fund vital research that will help the hundreds of thousands of people living with brain tumors.”
