BRAIN CANCER RESEARCH
Ten years ago, the average survival rate for patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) – the most aggressive form of brain cancer - was less than one year. Thanks to recent advances, it is now approximately eighteen months, with some patients living beyond the three- and five-year marks. The inaugural A BRILLIANT NIGHT will raise much-needed funds for the Next Generation of Brain Cancer Treatment and TARGiT, two ground-breaking brain tumor research programs at The Neuro.
With your help, The Neuro’s doctors will use precision medicine and new therapeutics that prevent brain cancer invasion to provide patients with more effective treatments and a reduced risk of relapse.
Please help The Neuro be at the helm of this progress and bring a brighter future to those afflicted with this terrible disease.
Please read the attached documents for information on this amazing research and the people behind it.
The inaugural A Brilliant Night, in 2015 at the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium, raised an astounding $690,000 for brain tumour research.
This year, chaired by Madeleine Paquin, President and CEO of Logistec Corporation, A Brilliant Night 2016 will take place at the breathtakingly sophisticated Windsor Station. The venue will be transformed through lights, sound and digital technology into a starry-spectacle of hope. During a cocktail dinatoire guests will be immersed in educational, emotional and sensorial experiences, each lending to a heightened sense of awe and inspiration.
Top culinary delights and innovative cocktails - with a focus on “brain-health” - will be provided by the city’s leading restaurants and trend setters. The soirée will also feature top-tier entertainment, an extravagant silent auction, interactive social media experiences, exciting gift bags and more.
