HOW CUREFEST CAME TO CANADA
On May 1st, 2015 Natasha Rose Gould was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Gliomas (DIPG) a highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumor found at the base of the brain, mostly in children. Natasha passed away on August 4th, 2016, 15 months after her diagnosis.
At the 2015 CureFest in Washington, cancer fighter Natasha was a guest speaker. In the days following, Natasha made many media appearances. A month later, Natasha was invited to co-host a CureFest follow-up event in front of the White House, resulting in more media exposure.
In honour of Natasha, CureFest was first held in Canada on September 18, 2016 at North Glenmore Park in Calgary.
