The Canadian Cancer Society and the Sunnybrook Foundation say the Tragically Hip‘s recent tour has raised more than $1 million for brain cancer research in Canada. WOW!
The Sunnybrook Foundation says donations the donations have been made to the Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto. This program is designed to give brain cancer researchers the tools to help conquer brain cancers that are currently uncurable – like Gord’s.
Dr. James Perry, head of neurology at Sunnybrook said in a statement today, “At Sunnybrook and at cancer centres across the globe, we are making important advances in brain tumour treatment, and support like this helps us continue our work. To all those who have donated to brain cancer research, thank you.”
