So, at the beginning of the week, we launched a crowdfunding campaign with the objective of raising one million dollars to meet its needs and to advance research on this type of cancer.

At the time of this writing, a sum of $ 91,000 has been raised.

37-year-old Di Tullio was diagnosed with stage 4 glioblastoma and since June has had two surgeries to remove all visible tumors.

Glioblastoma is the most aggressive form of brain cancer. This is the same type of cancer that killed Derek Aucoin just under a year ago and the survival rate is extremely low.

Hope

Di Tullio, whose first name can be seen on the left sleeve of CF Montreal shirts this season, has been subjected to a high dose of chemotherapy since the beginning of October and the treatments will continue for six months.

We therefore live in hope by following a standard protocol for this type of cancer. But according to information that can be seen in the campaign, this is a protocol established some twenty years ago.

This is one of the reasons why this campaign was launched, we want to support research for this type of cancer which still poses many problems for medicine.

The aim is also to provide financial support to Di Tullio and his family who have to bear significant costs related to his treatments.

Return

Di Tullio was making a comeback with the squad this season, joining Wilfried Nancy’s staff on March 20.

He had also been Mauro Biello’s deputy from 2015 to 2017. He returned to the club in 2019 to take up a position within the Academy.

In the meantime, he has also served as an assistant on the Canadian National Men’s Under-23 Team.

As a player, Di Tullio wore the colors of the Montreal Impact from 2002 to 2007.
