Andrew’s Story

  October 2, 2017

Youth Education Award Recipient 2017

Andrew Welsh (Abbotsford, BC)
Pursuing Biomedical Engineering at the University of Waterloo
Diagnosed with a suprasellar craniopharyngioma at age 9
Generously funded by West Coast Trail Hike

“Having successfully battled a brain tumour, I have experienced firsthand the benefit that biomedical technology has in saving a person’s life and want to give back in that area.

This award will lessen my financial burden, allowing me to focus more on my studies as I continue my third year of Biomedical Engineering – inspiring me to keep going when the journey gets tough.

It will help me reach my goal of helping others who were in situations like me through medical technology.”
