Elisabetta Mancini Camporeale

Born 20 May 1954, GBM diagnosis 13 Dec 1999, died 2 Mar 2012.

Co-founder and Editor, BrainLife

The IBTA was tremendously saddened to hear of the death of Elisabetta Mancini Camporeale who, with her husband Giovanni Camporeale, was a Co-Founder and Co-Editor of BrainLife, an online structured database of medical sources relating to brain tumours. Elisabetta was diagnosed with a glioblastoma multiforme on 13 December 1999 and passed away on 2 March  2012.  As a 13 year survivor of a malignant brain tumour, Elisabetta inspired patients around the world with her story of hope and determination.  As well as co-editing BrainLife, Elisabetta wrote numerous children’s stories which can also be found on the BrainLife website. The IBTA worked closely with Elisabetta and Giovanni and we send our deepest condolences to the Camporeale family on the loss of a truly amazing woman.
