The Taite Boomer Memorial Brain Tumor Foundation is a local non-profit foundation in Edmonton 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 $130,000! Through our affiliation with the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, we have been able to fund nine Research Studentships and a Youth Education Award. On top of this, our team has contributed over $31,000 to the annual Edmonton Brain Tumour Walk.
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.
