For her 5th Birthday, Kiara Mistry of Mississauga, Ontario asked her friends and relatives to donate to the CCBCF instead of receiving presents. She did this in honor of her friend Morgan Allen from Florida who passed away from DIPG in September of 2018.

We asked Kiara if she would hand deliver a cheque to the Hawkins Laboratory to help further DIPG research and she was happy to do so. In addition to Morgan this grant is also our tribute to Jordyn Godin and Justin Brouwer, taken from us in 2018, and to Parker Martin who is currently in the battle against DIPG. We find the kids have the biggest hearts and are the CCBCF’s best supporters and Kiara is definitely proof of that! Thank you Kiara!
