For several years, Alysha Cooper has been an active member of Team Holly and Kate in the Belleville Brain Tumour Walk.
“It is a day for everyone who is affected by a brain tumour in the community to come together and share their experiences.” Alysha passionately expresses.
“We walk to support, bring awareness, and give hope to individuals who are fighting; for the survivors, and our loved ones who have lost their fight due to a brain tumour.” she proudly states.
Although the walk is once a year, it is a day that Alysha looks forward to.
The event proves what is capable when the community rallies together in the hope of ending brain tumours.
“It is a constant reminder to keep fighting and support those who need it.
My motivation to donate my hair in recent years is because of the people I know who have been affected by a brain tumour.” she advocates.
Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada has given Alysha resources and the opportunity to make a meaningful difference for those enduring a journey with a brain tumour.
On behalf of Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada and the brain tumour community:
Thank you, Alysha Cooper and Team Holly and Katie!
