Shandy

Because of kids’ growing brains and bodies, chemotherapy and radiation are detrimental to their ongoing development. Those who do survive a brain cancer diagnosis are often left with devastating side effects that change their lives forever –  kids like Shandy, who was just 10 years old when diagnosed and battled intensive brain cancer treatment for more than a year.Shandy at 10 years old

Surviving childhood brain cancer isn’t enough. Our kids deserve to thrive.

About the Pediatric Brain Tumour Impact Grant

Dr Michael TaylorProminent brain cancer researcher, Dr. Michael Taylor, was the first to discover that medulloblastoma wasn’t just one form of brain cancer, but four distinct types — each with their own DNA footprint.
 
Now Dr. Taylor and his team of researchers want to know how each type of medulloblastoma changes in response to treatment, and how to develop personalized care for every child diagnosed, so the most aggressive treatments are used only on the most aggressive brain cancers.

Childhood Brain Tumour Signs & Symptoms

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!
