For the fifth year in a row, A.M.A.

Flower Pouch to support the Brain
Tumour Foundation of Canada (BTFC).

Improved sales in Canada meant a
larger donation for 2007.

This brings A.M.A.’s fiveyear
total to more than $34,000.
Marshall and Relecom are holding the
Brain Tumour Foundation version of Al’s
Flower Pouch.
In addition to other Canadian Flower
Pouch sales during the 2006-07 season,
A.M.A. sold about 85,000 of these specially
printed pouches, which include the BTFC
logo, its toll-free number and the website
address.
While Bradt has been tumour-free for
three years, brain tumours affect 55,000
other Canadians, with about 10,000 new
patients diagnosed each year.

The BTFC
offers patient and patient family support,
provides research assistance, and supports
the Brain Tumour Tissue Bank in
London and its efforts to supply
researchers throughout the world with
brain tumour tissue samples.
Connie and Rick Bradt would like to
thank their staff at A.M.A., the staff and
volunteers at the BTFC, and loyal Al’s
Flower Pouch customers who have helped
make this fundraising effort such a success.

The company is celebrating its silver
anniversary this year, having begun operations
in 1982.
