Please join the effort to find the cause and cure for Brain Cancer. 

Jeff Hemstreet, Val Bishop, Gordon and Nicolette Frosst are riding their bicycles across Canada in an effort to raise awareness for brain cancer and to solicit donations for this illness. This year they will ride from Vancouver to Winnipeg, in 2019 from Winnipeg to Ottawa and in 2020 from Ottawa to St. John's, Newfoundland.

Please consider donating what you are able to now.  Every donation helps. 

 

Chris’ story…
As a busy father of 3 young boys my life changed when in January 2017 I was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor - Glioblastoma Multiforme Stage 4 - the same type that Gord Downie from the Tragically Hip had. I was told that the median survival, even with aggressive treatment, is 14.6 months and that this statistic hasn't really changed in the last 20 years. The majority of people diagnosed when I was are unfortunately no longer with us.  This needs to change and with your support we can make a difference.


But this is about more than just me. Everyday 27 Canadians are diagnosed with various types of brain tumours. Today, it is estimated that 55,000 Canadians are surviving with a brain tumour. This terrible disease doesn't just affect adults. Brain tumours are now the #1 cause of cancer death in children under the age of 20 and we don't even know what causes them. This needs to change.


Please consider being a part of this movement - every bit helps!


Thank you!
Chris Moore (Team Captain/Cancer Survivor)
