Walking for Sam the Tumour Man
This year marks our 8th Brain Tumour Walk and 8 years since my son Sam was diagnosed with two astrocytoma brain tumours. Thanks to the amazing surgeons and doctors at Sick Kids and St. Michaels hospitals, Sam continues to do well and his remaining tumour has stabalized with no new growth.
I am participating in Brain Tumour walk because I am passionate about transforming the future for brain tumour patients and survivors. Starting with the moment you hear the words, "you have a brain tumour," information, support and education is critical. And so is investment in research. There are too few treatments for this disease and survival needs to be improved.
Every dollar raised by Brain Tumour walk goes towards these goals through the good work done by Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada – that's what I am supporting.
Thank you for giving and more importantly, for helping the 55,000 Canadians living with a brain tumour. Your help changes lives.
