“I started volunteering with the organization in 2007 and was overwhelmed by the sense of community I found... I've loved being a part of the BrainWAVE committee as it provides me with a way to reignite my inner kidlet as well as provide these families with the chance to relax for a while and leave the brain tumour stuff behind. It is a privilege to gain the trust that the families allow me by letting me into their stories and their lives.”
Kimberly Vaughan, BrainWAVE committee member
