Please help us honour Gord Downie, who the world lost to glioblastoma, and raise awareness and funds for cancer research. All proceeds raised will be donated to the Tom Baker Cancer Centre. Together, we identify the greatest needs and the biggest opportunities to improve patient experience.
At the root of everything he did, Gord Downie embodied courage. We honour Gord by revisiting his powerful words that continue to lend courage to those who need it most.
