The Gerry & Nancy Pencer Brain Tumor Centre at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre

 The Gerry & Nancy Pencer Brain Tumor Centre at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre In 1997, Gerry Pencer, the CEO of the world’s largest private label soft drink maker, was diagnosed with a grade 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme brain tumor.  During the course of his illness, Gerry sought information, answers, treatment options, and support systems for both himself and his family. When he discovered the lack of readily available resources for brain tumor patients, Gerry Pencer set out to change the system.  It was Gerry’s dream to fund and establish a world-class brain tumor centre where patients could feel at home while receiving state-of-the-art treatment and support, and where leading edge research could be encouraged. In November 1998, The Gerry & Nancy Pencer Brain Tumor Centre opened its doors on the 18th floor of Toronto’s Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and Gerry’s dream was realized.   MORE INFO & MAKE A DONATION
