The Ayverie Childhood Cancer Research Fund

Ayverie Caster, was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma (brain cancer) one day after her 8th birthday. Together, Ayverie and her medical team fought courageously for over 6 years until it claimed her young life at 14 years old.

Despite her illness, Ayverie always had a passion for giving to everyone around her. She always wanted to share everything and she was driven to help others.

Ayverie’s greatest wish was to find a cure for cancer, specifically Childhood Cancer – not because she had medulloblastoma, but because she did not want another child or family to suffer.

Because of Ayverie, The Ayverie Childhood Cancer Research Fund began.

All funds raised will purchase 6 Cube Monitors*. For the McMaster Children’s Hospital, Pediatric Oncology Ward.

This was a passion project that Ayverie, was proud and excited to undertake with the support of the Oakville Trafalgar Lions Club. The Ayverie Childhood Cancer Research Fund was adopted as a A711 district project.
