The aim is to create a research center of brain tumors at the IMM

Adelaide Passos, grandmother of a boy who was diagnosed with a brain tumor, decided to start a campaign to raise funds for research in brain tumors, more specifically for the creation of a research center of this disease at Instituto de Medicina Molecular. From her own contribution with the copyrights of the book The Heaven Can Wait - where she reveals her experience with the illness of one of his grandsons - Adelaide Passos will take the lead and show to other parents, grandparents and patient’s relatives that they can make a difference to the fight against tumors by contributing with funds for biomedical research.
