UoGuelph prof leads McMaster fundraising campaign to support glioblastoma research

September 1, 2021
University of Guelph professor Dr Thomas Graham is leading a fundraising campaign at McMaster University in memory of his wife Cindy Graham, who passed away due to an aggressive brain cancer called glioblastoma. Throughout her illness, Cindy donated tissue samples to the lab at McMaster, and donated her brain and brain stem to research. “This was the first time I had a patient request to donate their organs for research,” said Dr Fred Lam, a clinical scholar working at McMaster’s Sheila Singh Lab and treating patients. “I was lost for words.” Thomas has established an endowment fund that will provide annual grants and scholarships to graduate students who are studying glioblastoma at the Sheila Singh Lab.
