Northey Family Library

The Northey Family Library was established in 2005 as a source of brain tumour information to support anyone affected by a brain tumour.

There are more than 30 topics explored including brain tumours, nutrition, personal stories and much more.

Each section has a list of books related to that topic as well as external links to other community programs and services.

If you live in or near London, Ontario or visiting and would like to come in for a visit to browse our materials, we would love to meet you in person.

Pablo's Story: The real blessing in all of this

In 2010, Pablo found himself in the ER eight times within six weeks. Intense headaches, drastic weight loss, jaundice, dizziness, and lapses in time were repeatedly dismissed by doctors, but Pablo knew that something was very wrong. Choosing to advocate for his health when others might have given up, Pablo sought out the opinion of his family practitioner and his persistence may have, in fact, saved his life. An MRI revealed a grade IV atypical meningioma on Pablo’s brain.
