Hoyt, Sandy (Alexander)

March 21, 1939 - August 5, 2002

Sandy was known as "… that nice man on the radio…" at radio station CHFI-FM in Toronto. He had a fantastic sense of humour, loved to travel and was an avid cyclist. Sandy was diagnosed with an inoperable anaplastic astrocytoma in March of 2002. His journey with a brain tumour was challenging and brief, yet he humbly surrendered to the dedication, love and care of his closest family and friends, who became known as "Team Sandy."  He leaves behind six children: Allison, Tracey, Angela, Gary, Alexander and Jon Ross. We miss our Dear Old Dad.

Tracey Hoyt, September 2004.

Childhood Brain Tumour Signs & Symptoms

Earlier this year, you gave us your feedback in a survey on brain tumour signs and symptoms. One of the things we did with that survey was to compile a list of the most common signs & symptoms for children. Now, as part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we are sharing compelling quotes from that survey and urging you to share them with this link to see the symptoms: www.braintumour.ca/symptoms. Thank you!
