There are so many ways you can help make a difference in the lives of patients and families today.
On February 18, 2020, Allison, a 33 year old mother of three (all under 5), went to go see the doctor to look into a headache that was getting progressively worse. Within two weeks, Allison had gone from having a headache, to becoming one of the 27 Canadians who everyday hear the words: “You have a brain tumour”, to being told she had Glioblastoma, one of the more aggressive brain tumour types.
To help fund research and foster innovation, Allison’s family and friends have established the Dunn with Cancer Run, which took place in London, Ontario on September 19, 2020, as part of the That Dam Hill Run, to help raise money for the Dunn with Cancer Research Fund. This research fund will help to expand the field of researchers and help fund new innovative concepts, bringing us closer to achieving our vision: To find the cause of and a cure for brain tumours while improving the quality of life for those affected.
The 2021 Dunn with Cancer Run is being planned. Details coming soon.
