GLIOBLASTOM - Anni Hofmann Stiftung

Formation

The Anni Hofmann Foundation was founded on 30 January 2013.

"It was founded in response to the death of my long-term partner, Anni Hofman, who died on 10.09.2012, after losing her battle against glioblastoma.

All the very latest treatments available today, such as surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy were utterly futile. In the short period of time before her death, she developed both numbness and cramping, as well as losing control of numerous bodily functions.

On a daily basis, I had to witness how my partner continued on her path of progressive physical decline, how she suffered as a result of this, and how utterly helpless her doctors were in all of this. This is why I decided to set up a Foundation that would be aimed at furthering our understanding of the origin and development of glioblastoma in the hope that this work may lead to the development of new treatment options."
