    WHY       Fundraiser to support The Pencer Brain Trust  Approximately
              10,000 Canadians are diagnosed with a brain tumor each year.
              Treatment is complicated given that there are more than 120
              types and the location in the brain varies greatly from patient
              to patient. The Pencer Brain Tumor Centre at Princess Margaret
              Hospital is a clinic unlike any other; an environment designed
              to encourage optimism and comfort - a home away from home.
