Brad and Jeff's Story of Strength

Brad and Jeff's Story of Strength

Brad and Jeff are sharing their story of strength in support of Brain Tumour Awareness Month

"Let's just say that everyone has been for a scan," says Jeff DeBoer. Jeff is one of two brothers who were each diagnosed with a brain tumour.

This video showcases the strength of one family in the face of the strange twist of fate that saw two brain tumour diagnoses within just six months.

The brothers find strength in humour, which you will feel the moment the video opens. Jeff and Brad's warmth and good nature emanates from the screen. This video is part of the 2013 Brain Tumour Awareness Month series celebrating strength.
