A Message From D Murray Armitage
Hi friends, I hope you can join in raising funds for this campaign. I set no goal because I know whatever we raise together will make a huge impact. Alexander was a pretty amazing little kid that touched my life and I would love to help the Grey Matters Quest to help others.
About this Campaign
Pediatric brain tumours occur regularly, randomly, and spare no ethnic group or geographical region. They cannot be predicted or prevented.
Too many children are dying from something we know so little about and this is why Alexander's Quest helps fund pediatric brain tumour research. Alexander had a rare and aggressive tumour called ETANTR. After he passed away, the University of Calgary was able to start the first ETANTR cell line in history using Alexander's tumour donation. His donation was only the first step though, we need your help to continue the fight against pediatric brain tumours.
October is brain tumour awareness month and Alexander's Quest, together with Role Mother's of Market Mall, is excited to hold a Donation Drive to raise money for pediatric brain tumour research.
100% of your donations will go to the University of Calgary for pediatric brain tumour research. The top four fundraisers of this campaign will receive a gift basket that includes prizes from the retailers of Market Mall as well as a $50.00 Cadillac Fairview Shop!Card. Fundraisers will also get one entry into a separate draw for every $100.00 raised.
This year, 50 Alberta kids will lose their battle to childhood cancer and 250,000 families world wide will be told their child has cancer.
Supporting research is the only chance we have to stop childhood cancer. Please donate generously and help us put an end to childhood cancer.
