Welcome to new Patient Representative Catherine Wreford

Supporting the Brain Cancer Disease Site Committee

CCTG would like to welcome our new Patient Representative, Catherine Wreford who will be supporting the Brain Cancer Disease Site Committee. Catherine is a professional dancer and actress who was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. In 2013, a little over a month after giving birth to her second child, Catherine was diagnosed with incurable anaplastic astrocytoma (a malignant brain tumour). She was given 2-6 years to live and her treatment consisted of a craniotomy, radiation and four kinds of chemo - almost 10 years later she has outlived her initial prognosis and she wants to live longer!

Catherine with her best friend Craig were the most recent winners of the Amazing Race Canada. Their goal was to show Catherine’s children how strong, determined, and courageous their mother was during her cancer battle.

We encourage brain cancer committee members to reach out to Catherine, we are excited to welcome her to the CCTG team!
