In the summer of 2011, Altona resident and fellow Golden West Radio employee, Bernie Funk, experienced a seizure.

He was rushed to hospital, where it was discovered that he had a brain tumor, and that surgery was needed to remove it.

Funk says God protected his family and himself in many ways throughout this experience...

Funk is now fully recovered. He says going through this experience has strengthened not only his, but his wife's faith.

This weekend, for the second year in a row, Funk along with his family will participate in the Brain Tumor Foundation's Walk/Run at Assiniboine Park.

All funds raised at the event will go towards brain tumor research and counseling for families dealing with a similar experience.
