“OurBrainBank is a non-profit dedicated to moving glioblastoma from terminal to treatable, powered by patients.
Our key tool is the OurBrainBank app which helps people manage their disease as well as provide much-needed data for medical researchers…
…As you progress, you may view your data at any time: access reports via the menu icon (bars at the top left of the app screen) and select ‘my reports’. Compare different symptoms and view your progress over time.
You may share your data with other people, including your healthcare team, so they can see how your symptoms may have changed. This may help you understand the relationship between your treatments and your symptoms.
The app allows you to self-track neurological function with games that test balance, ability to compare numbers, and speed of neurological function. They’re quite addictive!
The app can be used to track health data such as your weight, blood pressure, or blood sugar. There’s also a neat journal feature, so you can record how you’re doing.
We plan to publish our findings widely, sharing the insights gleaned from the aggregated data, and driving more research to crack glioblastoma.We encourage you to continue to participate after your first 100 days. Your input is crucial to the success of the mission — to turn GBM from terminal to treatable”

The app also helps to connect patients with prospective clinical trials.”
