The Genetic Aortic Disorders Association (GADA) Canada, formerly known as the Canadian Marfan Association (CMA), is very thankful to the family and friends who came out to honour Noelle Beer at her fundraiser on Sunday, April 26, 2014 at the Scarboro Golf and Country Club. Noelle’s parents and sisters organized this beautiful breakfast-brunch event with raffles and a silent auction that was attended by 140 people and raised $4,045.00. Everyone who participated had a great time at the event!
Noelle, now 4 years old, was diagnosed with Marfan syndrome at the age of 16 months. Bravely coping with the different complications of the syndrome, Noelle is an incredibly courageous girl whose smile, laughter and strong personality is an inspiration to all those known to her.
GADA Canada is truly appreciative to Tanya and Kevin Beer, for their efforts in hosting the 2nd annual fundraiser in honour of their daughter and in helping to promote awareness of Marfan syndrome within their community. We are extremely humbled by the involvement and participation of friends, family members and the local community in this fundraising event.
With the growth of CMA to GADA Canada and our new purpose to serve all known genetic aortic disorders through our programs of education, support and research, we need more help from you now than ever before. We truly cannot continue our programs and achieve our mission without the support of individual donors and member fundraisers.
Thank you one and all for helping us grow to serve more members of our community!
