Our Mission

The Taite Boomer Memorial Brain Tumor Foundation is a local Edmonton foundation that aims to raise funds for, and awareness of, brain tumors in honor and memory of Taite Boomer. Taite was a bright student, an excellent athlete, a true friend and an amazing son who developed a brain tumor at the age of 20 and succumbed to it before turning 21.

Since we started in November of 2012, we have succeeded in raising over $73 000, which has allowed us to already fund two Research Studentships and a Youth Education Award. On top of this, our team contributed over $30 00 to the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada’s Spring Sprints.

We believe that in order to promote and fund further research on brain tumors, we need to bring more awareness to brain cancer and its many forms. Please read and share Taite’s story, learn about brain cancer and find ways to get involved with the search for the cure. Help us fight brain cancer today.

Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Use the hashtags #NeverBackDown, #BTSM (brain tumor social media) and #FightBrainCancer to share information about brain cancer.
