London Brain Tumour Walk 2018

Team VanDenAkker

I’m part of the movement to end brain tumours and I hope you’ll support me and my team in this Canada-wide effort to put a stop to this disease.

We are walking in memory of Paul VanDenAkker our Partner, Father, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle and Friend who passed away August 10, 2016, a month before his 54th birthday from a cancerous brain tumour. He collapsed Dec 9 2015, at the job site with a seizure, was taken to the hospital by ambulance where he was eventually diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour. This picture was taken 3 months prior to his death, after having undergone brain surgery to remove the tumour, radiation and chemo. He survived eight months from the original seizure.

By signing up for a 2018 Brain Tumor Walk,our team have made a commitment to end brain tumors and to help provide the essential information and support that every person diagnosed deserves.

All money raised through Brain Tumor Walk events strengthens the national movement to end this life-changing disease and brings hope to individuals and families across the country:

Please make a donation in memory of Paul.

Hope for progress in discovering the cause of brain tumors.
Hope for better treatments for every child and adult diagnosed.
And most of all, the hope for a cure.

Thank you for supporting me and my team, and more importantly, for helping the 55,000 Canadians who live with a brain tumor today.
