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. Donations can be made through a secure site, My Charitable Impact, and tax receipts issued immediately.
Since starting the fund, we have raised over $102,000. THANK YOU TO OUR CORPORATE DONORS
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 working to build programs and services for brain cancer patients and caregivers at The Odette Cancer Centre's brain tumour clinic under Dr. James Perry at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, St. Michael's Hospital Neurosurgery Unit and Dr. Sunit Das, and the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.
OUR FIRST FUNDRAISING EVENT WAS A GREAT SUCCESS!
November 7-15, 2020 marked our first online auction. This virtual event brought together dozens of Toronto retailers, restaurants and service providers who donated fantastic items to help us raise awareness, money and gather our community.
Special thanks to all of the amazing and generous small businesses and donors who provided us with terrific items. See the list below and please be sure to support these businesses in the future.
