In lieu of flowers, gifts to support causes important to Brooke may be made to:
In the developing world, people die of treatable cancers because of a lack of resources. Brooke hoped to spend her life improving global access to oncological care. She worked in the oncology ward at the Korle Bu Teaching hospital in Ghana, and planned to work with clinicians in Uganda and, via G.O., with researchers in Nigeria at the time of her diagnosis.
Osteosarcoma is a very rare disease with few established treatments if frontline options fail. MIB helps connect patients, doctors, and researchers in pursuit of new options. Brooke connected with researchers who helped advise her treatment at their annual conference. Her family fund will help support further research.
To honor Brooke and further her legacy, efforts are underway to establish a self-sustaining fund to support Brooke's passions of medical education, global health, and health equity. Details will be published here at a later date, but please subscribe using the form here to be notified of updates.
