End Brain Cancer

Exhibition Partner 

The End Brain Cancer Initiative (EBCI), formerly the Chris Elliott Fund,,  is a 501 (c)3 non-profit Patient Advocacy organization focused on early drug development and increasing patient and care partner access to advanced treatments, diagnostics, devices, technology, clinical trials, etc. and on advancing and turning science and data into additional FDA approved treatment options for cancer patients, including brain tumors, brain cancer and metastasized disease to the brain and again, increasing patient access through commercialization and reimbursement efforts.  Specifically, we partner with industry/sponsors to accomplish these goals by:

  • Offering our 22+ years of expertise to assist sponsors in early drug development and improving patient access to diagnostics, devices, clinical trials, etc. by developing surveys/questionnaires, patient disease education ads/flyers, clinical trial protocol, etc. by “inserting the patient and care partner voice” into all aspects of development.
  • EBCI creates strategic patient disease education, awareness & outreach campaigns focused on the above and recruits for the above projects on a project by project basis
  • EBCI develops, produces, manages and MC’s patient/care partner focus groups/roundtables.
  • EBCI provides opportunities for industry/sponsors, researchers, specialists, etc.  to share their product, drug, device, diagnostic, etc. directly with the general public and to patients, care partners, families and specific communities via online platforms, websites, our disease mobile application, Initiative Sponsorships, Corporate Partnership Sponsorships, Disease Education Program Grants, Consulting Services, etc.
