There are so many ways you can help make a difference in the lives of patients and families today.
The DUNN with Cancer Research Fund was established in 2020 in memory of Allison Dunn, who was diagnosed with glioblastoma on February 18, 2020 at the age of 33. Allison spent her life dedicated to helping those less fortunate through her work in the Not For Profit sector, finding time to volunteer in the community and loved spending time with her three young children.
Allison’s diagnosis was unexpected – one week she was out hiking with her children, to the next week being told she had an inoperable tumour with an average life expectancy of 18 months. When chemotherapy and radiation treatment had minimal impacts, Allison passed away peacefully on June 17, 2020, 4 months less a day after the tumour was discovered.
Determined to fund research and foster innovation, Allison’s family started the DUNN with Cancer run in 2020. In the first three years this event has raised $700,000. The funds raised so far have sponsored two Fellowships and five research grants. While this is a fantastic start, we know more needs to be done to support glioblastoma research.
The Movement of Hope that we started three years ago continues in 2023. We will run for each person who has been or will be impacted by glioblastoma. We run to raise money to find more innovative concepts that will change the future for others affected by this devastating disease..
Join us on September 16, 2023 for the 4th Annual DUNN with Cancer run at Springbank Park in London, ON, or give generously today. Together we can change the future for other families.
