Archive: Brain Tumours, Mary Jo Leddy

More To Life

It's a diagnosis that affects over ten thousand Canadians every year. And that number is growing. Brain tumours can affect everyone from the very young to the very old. And there's no way to predict who will get the disease, but people are working on a cure. Here today with the latest on research, treatment and support are Dr. Normand Laperriere, a Radiation Oncologist at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto. Maureen Daniels, the coordinator of the Pencer Brain Tumor Centre at Princess Margaret Hospital and Dan Sheehan, a brain tumour patient. My next guest has a passion for social justice. And it's this work that's led her on a challenging and multi-faceted path. Mary Jo Leddy is a former nun, founding editor of the Catholic New Times, theology professor at the University of Toronto, an author of several books and the recipient of the Order of Canada. She's currently the director of Toronto's Romero House where she devotes her energies working and advocating for refugees.
