"Two years ago my daughter Vicki lost her battle with a brainstem glioma. As a family, we treasured the times that we escaped her reality and did something fun together. BrainWAVE is devoted to providing just such times for children and their families whose “normal” is facing difficult challenges every day due to a brain tumour. Volunteering with BrainWAVE has given me the opportunity to help organize and participate in these special events. The best part is we get to watch these kids just be kids, which is the way life should be."
