EVENTS

September 30th AT 8:00PM Showcase in Support of TALI'S FUND

About TALI'S FUND

Tali’s Fund was created in loving memory of our beautiful 4-year old daughter, Tal Esther Doron, who lost her battle with a rare and aggressive brain tumour known as ATRT on August 26, 2007. Tal, affectionately known as Tali, was a strong, determined, and happy little girl. Despite her very difficult circumstances, she seized the opportunity, whenever possible, to be a child like any other. Through her words and actions, our little girl lit up the world, exuding kindness, gentleness, and deep affection for those fortunate enough to be around her. Tali touched the lives of so many in her four short years, and she continues to be a source of inspiration. She lives on in our hearts and sparks our determination to help make a difference. Brain tumours are the leading cause of cancer-related death among children and adolescents under age 20. At this time, there is no way to predict or prevent a brain tumour, and the cause of most brain tumours is not fully understood. Current treatment options are limited and result in significant side effects that harm a child's developing brain. Research is essential for discovering treatments and finding a cure.
