Andy's Volunteer Profile

Andy's Volunteer Profile

Andy is a doctor in Calgary who saw an opportunity through volunteering to support patients and his community. He was grateful to express what that meant to him.

“Presently, I hold the volunteer position of co-lead coordinator in Calgary for the Brain Tumour Walk. This is my first year at this position and before that I was the volunteer coordinator.

I just love Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, period. We are a strong set of determined individuals who serve one cause i.e to give hope, education, awareness and community support about brain tumours.

I would highly encourage people to come volunteer and see the lifelong impact a single walkathon will make. That is what happened to me and I am glad it did.”

 

Thank you Andy for volunteering your time, for your passion and unwavering dedication to the brain tumour community.

His Auntie May discouraged it from the start saying, “You are both Sagittarians and should NOT be together.” My daughter Isobel did a quick calculation. Fun fact. In a group of 100 people there is a 2.8% chance of two people having the same birthday.
