In the wake of Gord Downie’s cancer diagnosis, the Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research has been established at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Donations to the Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research will give Sunnybrook the tools to help beat brain cancers that are currently unbeatable, by supporting the investigation of new drugs, surgical techniques and genetic therapies. For example, their physicians are pioneering the use of ultrasound to help drugs reach brain tumours that couldn’t be reached before.
Proceeds from the Courage For Gord fundraising effort will be donated to the Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research to support groundbreaking research that benefits patients not only at Sunnybrook, but across Canada and around the world.
Online donations to the Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research can be made at our Courage For Gord Online Donation Page
