A Unique Board Member and a Unique Gift

A Unique Board Member and a Unique Gift

Dr. Joseph Megyesi, Neurosurgeon at London Health Sciences Centre, joined the Board of the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada in 2002 and has accepted the position of Vice Chair of the Board. After Dr. Megyesi joined the Board we learned that he was an avid hiker, most often in wilderness areas, throughout the world.

In May, Dr. Megyesi made a unique gift to Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada pledging 10 cents for each meter he climbed up Mt. Kilimanjaro and $10 for every mile that he hiked to Lake Te Anau in New Zealand.

Thank you Dr. Megyesi for all your hard work on the Board and your creative giving.
