It has been almost one year that our Antonio (Tony) is no longer among us. It just took one month from the day he was diagnosed with a brain tumor to the day he passed away. It was Glioblastoma Multiform Stage IV.
When the final diagnose came, my family and I felt powerless, nothing to do other than to prepare ourselves to say goodbye. A beloved husband, father and grandfather, son and brother that has been deeply missed and will be missed forever!
A silent desease that could not show evident symptoms and even if caught earlier, no effective treatment exists. Science is still struggling to understand such aggressive type of a brain cancer.
Last year, days after Tony’s memorial, family and friends joined the movement to end brain tumours at the Annual Edmonton Brain Tumour Walk.
In 2019, we want to do this again because PEOPLE AFFECTED BY BRAIN TUMOURS SHOULD NEVER WALK ALONE!
By signing up for a Brain Tumour Walk, me and my team have made a commitment to end brain tumours and to help provide the essential information and support that every person diagnosed deserves.
All money raised through Brain Tumour Walk events strengthens the national movement to end this life-changing disease and brings hope to individuals and families across the country:
Hope for progress in discovering the cause of brain tumours.
Hope for better treatments for every child and adult diagnosed.
And most of all, the hope for a cure.
Thank you for supporting my team, and more importantly, for helping the 55,000 Canadians who live with a brain tumour today.
