In mid-November, Dave appeared on CTV Morning Live alongside Jane L. Johnson, who created, "Kimmie's Rainbow of Hope", a delicious cookbook whose proceeds go to support neuroblastoma research. Jane lost her daughter Kimmie to this devastating disease, and has been a staunch supporter of our work. Dave explained a little more about what we do, and highlighted the importance of new approaches to therapy. You can buy a copy of the recipe book here, or re-watch the interview here.
On Christmas Eve, Dave appeared alongside OHRI collaborator John Bell to help explain the importance of our research to Hair Donation Ottawa. Members of the Stojdl lab will appear at Hair Donation Ottawa's annual fundraising event on 27th April 2014. You can find out more about how you can support this excellent charity here.
One of our youngest fundraisers, 7-year old Maisy Anderson, presented Dave with a cheque for $2500, which she raised with a very successful community penny drive! Maisy, a leukaemia patient at CHEO, got a private tour of the Stojdl lab's research facilities, and afterwards described it as her best day at CHEO! You can read more about this story here.
In mid-January, Dave presented a webinar on behalf of our supporters, the Brain Foundation of Canada.
