During Brain Tumour Awareness month in May, in support of D.I.P.G. Awareness Day in BC, our organization hosts Monkey Crew Family Fun Day. It celebrates Sevanah’s kind and playful spirit, and her love of all things Monkey while raising D.I.P.G. awareness and funds for brain tumour research initiatives. This year we are excited to support Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada’s Canadian Brain Tumour Registry project. This registry will be an essential tool for researchers and a crucial key in improving survival rates for all brain tumours in Canada. It will also provide an accurate incidence rate for D.I.P.G. tumours which will help to secure desperately needed research funding. 
 
Sevanah was a special girl with a heart of gold, and she will be forever missed, but your support provides a legacy in her honour to change the future for other brain cancer patients. Thank you for supporting the Canadian Brain Tumour Registry and our Monkey Crew Family Fun Day.
 
- Angelina Simmons, Sevanah’s heartbroken Mama
