It’s estimated approximately 55,000 Canadians are living with a brain tumour. At 7:15 Crystal will talk with one such man. Russell Farrel was diagnosed with a tumour two years ago.

He’ll be running in next week’s Spring Sprint in support of the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.

Our Uncle Ben’s Cooking with Kids segment continues at 7:45 with another lesson from Chef Richard Julien and the talented Cameron Brown!! Jill gets a lesson on how to prepare Asian-style Summer Rolls. An easy recipe that teaches kids important cooking skills they’ll use for years from now.
