We’re all about changing the odds. To make brain tumours go the way of the dinosaurs. To support the science and in the meantime the patients. This is why our brain matters projects are in the areas of Research, Care & Development.
For 16 months, Connor’s brilliant mind, strong body and gentle soul faced off against an ependymoma. Like many others, his brains and brawn gave it all to fight against the poor odds. But on April 20, 2013, Connor’s own battle ended. Inspired by his spirit of Aeternum Fortis, we created the RCD Foundation as a tribute to him and other brain tumour fighters.
