2022 Grow On Windsor Ambassadors
Meet the faces of Grow On Windsor: Brandon Smith, Gary Arora, Jermaine Jackson, Adrian Vido, and Robert Franz. Each of these men have received care from the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre. As Grow On Windsor Ambassadors, they are committed to raising awareness and funds for men living with cancer in our region. Throughout the month of November, you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about their stories here on our website, through Facebook, Instagram (@WindsorCCF), and Twitter, and at Events across the region.
We Grow On Together
Brandon, Gary, Jermaine, Adrian, and Robert each have unique experiences, yet there’s a commonality that bonds them – they knew that, to face cancer, they could not, and should not face it alone. During the month of November, each man will share his story. They’ll open up about the support received from family, loved ones and local healthcare heroes. This is the true spirit of Grow On Windsor – the community coming together to raise funds in support of cancer awareness, research, and treatment for men living in our region.
