About The Adam Fanaki Brain Fund
The Adam Fanaki Brain Fund was established in February 2020 by Janet, Isobel and Sam Fanaki to honour a wonderful husband and dad.
The goal is to support the charities providing programs and services to people living with a brain tumour.
Adam Fanaki was one of Canada's brightest lawyers and all around terrific guy.
In 2016 at the age of 47, Adam was diagnosed with glioblastoma (GBM), the most aggressive form of brain cancer. He passed away three and half years later.
GBM is a terminal disease, affecting men and women ages 45 - 75 years old.
Thanks to our fundraising efforts, we have supported virtual programs at the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada as well as the printing and distribution of their essential patient and caregiver handbooks.
In addition, the fund donated to the 3 Wishes program in the palliative unit at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto as well as their Comfort Fund which offers items like medicine, food gift cards, eyeglasses and transportation costs to those facing financial challenges.
Our fundraising has also contributed to the establishment of a new technology being developed by Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto and the BTF which will service those living across the country affected by a brain tumour.
We would like to take this opportunity to recognize some special organizations and individuals.
Our Lead Donor, Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP. As part of a 5 year partnership, DAVIES has committed to making our fundraising efforts a success.
BMO Private Wealth as well as Brian Facey and Julie Soloway for their generous involvement in being our Major Donors for 2 years now.
Finally, Manulife for their generous donation to the fund.
Thanks to the involvement of these Canadian business leaders as well as our individual donors, we look forward to continuing our fundraising efforts to help the brain tumour community.
