Aug. 16, 2011, Kingsville, Ont. — A.M.A. Plastics Ltd. is again supporting programs provided by the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.

A.M.A. Plastics managing director Rick Bradt recently presented the company’s ninth annual donation to Susan Relecom, BTFC’s director of development.

A portion of every Al’s Flower Pouch sale is donated to the BTFC. Thousands of the units sold in Canada are printed with the BTFC logo and contact info in an effort to help patients and their families find information about their condition, a problem encountered by Bradt following his brain tumour diagnosis in 2000.

“This year, extra funding was donated by our friends at BVB Substrates (BVB Sublime),” said Bradt.

About 55,000 Canadians are affected by a brain tumour. If you know someone recently diagnosed with a brain tumour, direct them to www.braintumour.ca, where they can find information, counselling and others in their situation.

The BTFC supports the brain tumour tissue bank and has been able to significantly increase its research grants in recent years. A major project now being considered will require substantial funding over the next few years.

“A.M.A. will be there to help, and we hope our friends will too, as we celebrate the 30th anniversary of A.M.A. Plastics, the 20th anniversary of Al’s Flower Pouch, and the tenth year of support for the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada in 2012,” said Bradt.
