The Adam Fanaki Brain Fund is in memory of Adam Fanaki who lost his battle to glioblastoma, the most aggressive and terminal form of brain cancer. The family is currently meeting with agencies who directly help those living with a terminal illness and their families. Agencies will be posted soon.

The Group's Purpose

The Adam Fanaki Brain Fund was established soon after Adam lost his battle to glioblastoma (GBM), the most aggressive form of brain cancer.

He fought hard for over 3 1/2 years. Adam and his wife Janet partnered with an excellent team of medical specialists at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto, and received wonderful palliative care at Dorothy Ley Hospice as well as back at Sunnybrook.

The funds raised will be directed at various charities. The family is currently in talks with these groups.

To celebrate Adam, the family will host a fundraiser on November 7, 2020. All are welcome to attend so be sure to check back for more information or send your interest to

Thank you for supporting us in our wish to keep Adam's memory alive.

About the Organizers

Janet Fanaki was Adam's wife of nearly 22 years. They were true partners in everything including his cancer diagnosis, surgery and treatments.

They shared the same birthday - same day and same year - as well as a commitment to helping others who are dealing with glioblastoma.

Now Janet and her children will continue to help keep Adam’s hopes and vision alive.
