The Adam Fanaki Brain Fund will support patients and their caregivers who are living with a brain cancer diagnosis. The fund is in memory of Adam Fanaki, a highly respected lawyer in Toronto and all-around great guy, who lost his battle to glioblastoma in February 2020.

The Group's Purpose

The Adam Fanaki Brain Fund will support programs and services for patients and caregivers living with a brain cancer diagnosis.

The fund is operated by Adam's wife Janet Fanaki and her children Isobel and Sam. The family knows too well the stress and emotional toll that brain cancer has on a family. Their goal is to provide some relief to individuals and their caregivers who are currently going through it.

Discussions are being had with Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre Neuro Oncologist Dr. James Perry and his team as well as the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada to identify the greatest needs.

About the Organizers

Janet and Adam Fanaki were together for 24 fun and adventurous years. They were true partners in every sense, including how they approached Adam's cancer diagnosis, surgery and treatments.

When Adam was diagnosed Isobel was 16 and Sam 14 years old. They were by their father's side in the ways that his brain cancer was affecting him both physically and emotionally for over three years.

Since his passing in February 2020, Janet, Isobel and Sam are fully committed to carry on Adam's legacy and help others who are struggling through their own brain cancer story.
