Ottawa Brain Tumour Walk 2018

The Brainy Bunch

It all started around a kitchen table after dinner....

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.

 November 19, 2015 changed our life forever.  That is the day Steve had what looked initially like a stroke, but was really a seizure.  Further testing revealed that it was a Grade 3 Anaplastic Oligodendroglioma.  

After a 9 hour awake craniotomy to debulk most of the tumour, 32 radiation treatments, and 6 months of chemotherapy, Steve is still alive and kicking!! It has not been an easy journey.  Tears and pain, sorrow and celebration. It has rocked our family to the core.  But we remain strong and steadfast. In October 2016 we were honoured to share our story at the National Brain Tumour Conference in Toronto.  It is still featured on the home page of The Brain Tumour Foundation website. Grab a box of Kleenex and enjoy the show! 

We are extremely grateful to the Brain Tumour Foundation for the immense work they do to advocate for brain tumour patients and families, provide education and support, and help fund well needed research.  We want to show our appreciation by raising funds during this walk.... we are all on this journey together. 

By signing up for a 2017 Brain Tumour Walk, me and my team have made a commitment to end brain tumours and to help provide the essential information and support that every person diagnosed deserves.


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




Hope for progress in discovering the cause of brain tumours.

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 tumour today.
