As we were trying to celebrate our quadruplets 1st birthday we were also trying to manage as Greg was suddenly very much not himself . November 1st 2019 our world was shattered when Greg was diagnosed with a large Brain Tumor on his frontal lobe and immediately hospitalized following back to back CT and MRI scans requested by his opthomolygist. Just 19days after his diagnoses he underwent an extensive surgery to resect as much of the tumor as possible which would help in determining the type of tumor it was. Before his diagnosis Greg was suffering from intense migraines that brought on nausea and vomitting. He had other symptoms of forgetfulness and brain fog but nothing compared to the rapid and sudden partial loss of sight. In a matter of 3 months he went  from okay to headaches to hospitalized. Thankfully once the tumor was was found, the doctors and Greg's team acted fast. The surgery was successful and he began  the healing process. Before Christmas he was given the news his tumor was cancerous and deemed a stage 3 anaplastic-obligodendroglioma. He quickly started Radiationd and chemotherapy and will continue to battle.

We hope you’ll support our team in this Canada-wide effort to put a stop to this disease.

By signing up for a Brain Tumour Walk, we 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 me and my team, and more importantly, for helping the 55,000 Canadians who live with a brain tumour today.
