Bradt's Brains Goes Dutch

Welcome to the Bradt's Brains Goes Dutch Team! #BradtsBrains

We are part of the movement to end brain tumours and hope you will support us and the Bradt's Brains team in this Canada-wide effort to put a stop to this disease.

Those who know us may remember that Rick is a brain tumour survivor himself, having had three brain surgeries between 2000 & 2004 to remove a pituitary macroadenoma. He is one of the fortunate ones who now lives a normal life. Many brain tumour patients are not nearly as fortunate, living with various disabilities, sometimes very severe. Others don't live too long after diagnosis. Many patients are young kids. Rick's mother was diagnosed with a non-malignant brain tumour three years ago - so far, she's doing well. Please come along as a team member or as a donor. Your help is appreciated more than you know.

Every day 27 Canadians learn they have a brain tumour. By signing up for a Brain Tumour Walk, we're making 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 Walks strengthen the national movement to end this life-changing disease and bring hope to individuals and families across the country.

#BradtsBrains NL: June 7, 2019

In addition to a #BradtsBrains Team walking in this years Brain Tumour Walk in Windsor, Rick and I will be taking a second #BradtsBrains team to the Netherlands to do a walk in the small village where my Dad was born. Our family and friends in Holland will be walking with us, together with Stichting Hersentumorfonds Nederland (Dutch Brain Tumour charity) to raise funds and awareness. The 5km walk will begin at the church in Broeksterwoude, and our team fundraising goal is $5,000. We invite anyone who will be in the Broeksterwoude Friesland area on Friday, June 7 to come and walk with us!

#BradtsBrains Windsor: June 8, 2019

Team Bradt's Brains will also be participating in the Windsor walk for fourth year in a row. We'd love to have you join the team and walk in the Windsor event on June 8th, having some fun and raising some money for BTFC. Family, friends and some of our staff will be there this year. Our team goal is to raise $1,000+ for the Brain Tumour Walk Windsor. Visit the Bradt's Brains Windsor page here:

If you can't make it to the Walks, you can support us or any of the Bradt's Brains team members with a donation. Large or small, every dollar makes a difference.

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 Bradt's Brains, and more importantly, for helping the 55,000 Canadians who live with a brain tumour today.

Connie Bradt, Team Captain
