Andy is a doctor in Calgary who saw an opportunity through volunteering to support patients and his community. He was grateful to express what that meant to him.
“Presently, I hold the volunteer position of co-lead coordinator in Calgary for the Brain Tumour Walk. This is my first year at this position and before that I was the volunteer coordinator.
I just love Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, period. We are a strong set of determined individuals who serve one cause i.e to give hope, education, awareness and community support about brain tumours.
I would highly encourage people to come volunteerand see the lifelong impact a single walkathon will make. That is what happened to me and I am glad it did.”
