Welcome to Dave's Brainiacs
I’m part of the movement to end brain tumours and I hope you’ll join me in this Canada-wide effort to put a stop to this disease.
Hello, and welcome to my Brain Tumour walk page.
In May of 2015 I was diagnosed with a grade 3 hemangiopericytoma tumour. I was quickly scheduled for surgery the next week. The 10 hour surgery went well as did the recovery. Later 6.5 weeks of radiation followed. I was very happy with the care I received. As this type of tumour is quite rare I wish to help raise awareness and help fund more resaerch for a cure. I am now living a healthy life and hopeful for the future.
Every day 27 Canadians learn they have a brain tumour. By signing up for a 2017 Brain Tumour Walk, I’m making 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 Walks strengthen the national movement to end this life-changing disease and bring 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 more importantly, for helping the 55,000 Canadians who live with a brain tumour today.
