Oluwatoyin Adewumi, Ed.M, Executive Director
Oluwatoyin (Toyin) is a 2-year breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed on February 14, 2017, just as she was getting ready to launch her restaurant, TamBo’s Kitchen. A mother, wife, and entrepreneur, her experiences during treatment became the clarion call to establish TamBo Foundation.
Toyin migrated to the US in 2000 as a student. A graduate of Smith College and Harvard Graduate School of Education, she has 19 years combined experience in strategy, business development, program development, hospitality, education, training, and health information technology. She is a member of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute’s (DFCI) Adult Patient and Family Advisory Council and is an avid supporter of the institute through its annual Jimmy Fund Walk. She uses her writing skills to document her breast cancer journey on her blog, Toyin-OEMA, and inspire others.
