At only 51 years of age, Adam Fanaki was taken from us far too soon. One of Canada's brightest lawyers, an accomplished public speaker and a terrific dad, husband and friend. He was loved by all who knew him.
After a three and a half year battle with glioblastoma, the most aggressive form of brain cancer, Adam succumbed to this disease on February 15, 2020.
To pay tribute to his life and help the causes that Adam felt passionately about, his family has established The Adam Fanaki Brain Fund. By clicking on the link, donations can be made through the secure site, My Charitable Impact, and tax receipts will be issued. Thanks to a generous donation, Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP has been named the lead donor of The Adam Fanaki Brain Fund. This partnership will continue through to 2024.
We are also excited to announce BMO Private Wealth as a corporate donor. Together with us our corporate partners are helping patients and caregivers living with a brain tumour diagnosis.
An online auction will take place in November of 2020. This will help to raise awareness, money, gather our community and highlight our corporate and individual partners.
A fundraising event is also scheduled to take place on November 7, 2020 in Toronto. Given the current COVID-19 social distancing restrictions we should anticipate that it will be postponed to 2021.
