Askari wa Ubongo
We are the Askari wa Ubongo (Brain Warriors)!
The team has been called to action by Anika, a four-year brain tumor survivor. Anika was born and living in Africa, before she was diagnosed at age 7 with Medulloblastoma in 2013, and completed her treatment in September, 2014. She misses Africa terribly, which is reflected in our team's Swahili name! Anika and her family feel strongly about supporting brain tumor research and data-based advocacy, so that hopefully in the future no child will have to go through what she did. We invite you to support our team!
