A Look Forward: Raising Awareness

Early in 2012, members of the film and television industry from Canada and the United States came together to produce three Public Service Announcements for Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. This effort was the result of the wish of 46-year old brain tumour activist Rob Blair who lost his 13-year battle with a brain tumour in August 2011. Near the end of his life, he expressed to his brother, filmmaker David Ray, a desire that he carry on his awareness raising efforts.

Rob's request was that David uses his talent and expertise to create a Public Service Announcement for the organization that supported him while he braved this devastating disease, Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. The three commercials below are the result of this effort. Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada is extremely grateful for the support of the community that has produced these pieces.

These commercials will be shown across Canada and will help as we work towards a future where we can find the cause of and the cure for brain tumours while improving the quality of life of those affected.

"Puzzle"

"Balloons"

"Darts"
