Growing up in a small town in Northern Canada and losing his mother to cancer at the age of six, made a large impact on Brett and how he thinks about community and living a purposeful life. He has been highly involved in philanthropy, including cancer research his entire life and believes that everyone can make a difference, not only those with money to donate. While in college, he drove a cancer patient to and from treatment on weekends. He founded the Star Mountain Charitable Foundation to ensure that Star Mountain had a core integration with society and a culture of positive impact.
