Ginty Jocius Brain Cancer Research Fund

An update! As of October 1st, 2015 we are pleased to announce that thanks to your generous support we helped the Canadian Cancer Society raise a total of $3.75 million in support of brain cancer research that will be matched dollar for dollar by Brain Canada!
Inspired by this success, we're not ready to stop. We are encouraged by your support and are committed to continue reaching toward our goal of $125,000! Both Brain Canada and the Canadian Cancer Society will partner again in 2016 if federal funding is made available to support these kinds of matching partnerships. In the event that this does not happen, the need for more research dollars for brain cancer remains constant and we will designate every dollar you donate to fund brain cancer research through the Canadian Cancer Society.
With gratitude,
The Jocius Family
 
Doubling Donations a Win-Win for the Ginty Jocius Brain Cancer Research Fund
We are the Jocius Family of Ontario, Alberta and North Carolina. With the help and the support of the Canadian Cancer Society, our family has established the Ginty Jocius Brain Cancer Research Fund.  We have created this Fund in memory of Ginty Jocius, loving husband and father, entrepreneur, businessman, philanthropist, and general ‘go getter’ who sadly died of brain cancer in 2008.
We are extremely pleased that all of the monies donated to Ginty’s Fund will go directly to brain cancer research. However, we are doubly excited that every donation made to this Fund through the Canadian Cancer Society will be matched dollar-for-dollar by Brain Canada through the Canada Brain Research Fund, a public-private partnership established by the Government of Canada.
Every year, almost 200,000 Canadians are diagnosed with some form of cancer. Our family knows too well that the prognosis for Categories 3 & 4 brain cancer is not good – and the incidence of these types of brain tumours is increasing in progressively younger and younger people.
So, our family has committed to raising $125,000 before the December 31st, 2015 deadline – which will blossom to $250,000 with the matched funding from Brain Canada. With more research, brain cancer will be detected and treated earlier – giving greater hope to families facing this challenging disease.
If you want to see your charitable tax-credit donation make a difference by doubling its impact in our Nation’s research labs, then please consider donating to the Ginty Jocius Brain Cancer Research Fund.
Together we can make a difference. Thank you for joining us in this important battle again brain cancer.
