Raising awareness and supporting patients and families living with brain cancerDr. Joseph Megyesi, Department of Neurosurgery, has been fascinated with the brain since medical school, an interest that inspired his involvement with the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada (BTFC).
As chairman of the board of directors, Dr. Megyesi works to raise awareness, support patients and families living with brain cancer and fundraise in support of research. He has been with the foundation for over 25 years and says it is the most satisfying endeavor of his career.
“Through my work the BTFC I have been able to help get the word out about this disease,” Dr. Megyesi said. “I have been able to help educate a large part of the community and I like to think I may have inspired others to help the community in their own way.”
