Dashing for Darrell
In 2012, after a 28-month struggle with an aggressive brain cancer called glioblastoma multiforme (GBM stage 4), Darrell Lodermeier died. He was 55 years young.
Glioblastoma multiforme is the most common type of malignant brain tumour. For an individual and their family, a brain tumour diagnosis is staggering. Even with aggressive treatment, the average survival time for patients with GBM is less than one year. In the near decade since Darrell was first diagnosed, this average survival time has remained basically unchanged.
This year, the Dashing for Darrell team is participating in the Brain Tumour Walk in Calgary to raise funds for the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.
We are asking for your support. All funds raised go to brain tumour research and support services for those affected by brain tumours across Canada.
