Team Melissa Hiebert
On April 5, 2019 our world was turned upside down. Our daughter Melissa was diagnosed with a frontal lobe brain tumour. She was 33 years old at the time. Melissa has gone through surgery, chemo and radiation this past year and is continuing to fight her battle with a Brain Tumour. I am excited to again be apart of fundraising this year for a great cause. I am inviting family and friends to join us to raise awareness for this devasting disease that has effected our family this year. This type of brain tumour that Melissa has is, by medical terms, "incurable", but with more research and much prayer, our prayer is that there will be a cure!
I’m part of the movement to end brain tumours and I hope you’ll support me and my team in this Canada-wide effort to put a stop to this devasting disease.

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.
Register now to connect with our community across Canada on Saturday June 27 to celebrate and support everyone affected by a brain tumour including our survivors, caregivers, health care professionals and researchers who are leading the way in finding the cause of and cure for brain tumours. The feelings of isolation and helplessness faced by the brain tumour community this year are unprecedented. Covid -19 has led to changes and challenges for so many Canadians undergoing g treatment,from rescheduled appointments to not being able to visit loved ones. That’s why it’s so important to come together as individuals and as a nation to support each other. Register today and be part of our cross country support network for everyone affected by a brain tumour.
