A message from Linda Tannenbaum regarding COVID-19

I know this is an especially stressful and uncertain time for patients and their families due to the coronavirus, and I am sending you all my strength and support.

I have seen so many examples over the years of how resilient and compassionate this community is, and I trust we will come through this newest challenge together.

In the meantime, I also want to assure you that OMF’s work to find answers for patients continues unabated. We remain committed to our mission of finding treatments and a cure for patients, and we are prepared to adapt in any way necessary to ensure this effort advances.

With hope for all,

Linda Tannenbaum
