Hi! I’m Cecilia and I recently joined Tali’s Fund as a Volunteer Fundraising Marketing and Planning Coordinator. It’s been a pleasure working with Kim and the other volunteers. I hope my marketing, finance and planning skills will contribute to the success of Tali’s Fund’s fundraising efforts. Together we can build a brighter future for kids with brain cancers.

Hi, my name is Eitan, and I am a good friend of Tali’s brother, Amir. I recently graduated from Western University with a Bachelor of Medical Sciences and my passions include science, learning, hockey, and charity. As someone with a history of cancer in my family, I am inspired by Tali’s story to help reach the goals of Tali’s Fund.

I am passionate about helping to make a difference in the lives of my community and I believe in our common humanity. I feel that if we pull together to meet the challenges that affect us all, we can all overcome barriers. I found Tali’s Fund earlier this year and was excited to take part in the Donate a Day fundraiser. I am a mother of two and I believe in the important work that Tali’s Fund does in support of future generations so that they may thrive.
