“I am passionate about fighting cancer after losing my dad to mesothelioma. As a volunteer, I will do whatever I can to help fight all forms of cancers. The Canadian Cancer Society is my cancer charity of choice and I am pleased to serve on its national board.”
I’m extremely grateful to the Canadian Cancer Society for funding my research with an Innovation Grant.
