A few months ago, I signed up for a challenge to raise awareness for brain cancer through an event organized by a charity organization in Australia called Cure Brain Cancer.
Through my book release of ‘Hold on please, Emily,’ last year, I connected with several cancer and brain tumour charities, Cure Brain Cancer being one of them.
Starting today for the everyday in April, I’ll be participating in the #Squats4BrainCancer challenge. I will be doing 100 squats with my family each day to help raise awareness and funds for Cure Brain Cancer. So far, I’ve raised $139 AUD and the challenge has just begun. If you would like to donate to this fundraiser or participate too, check out my fundraising page here.
My legs will be suffering for all of April, but fortunately, I do not rely on my legs to write. Between us, exercise is not my forte.
Before I end off this post, I wanted to send my heartfelt condolences to Tom Parker who lost his battle with glioblastoma (GBM) on March 30th. He’s a singer from the British-Irish boy band The Wanted. Hearing his story on the news reminded me about the importance of why we need to continue raising awareness to #endbraintumours. I am proud to support this event and hope that the message in my bestselling book will continue to help raise awareness for GBM.
If you would like to learn more about GBM in a more approachable medium while supporting the cause, grab a copy of my novel today here. Proceeds for my book go to support my local brain tumour charity, Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.
