Kelly Society

The Kelly Society was named for the special little girl who inspired the creation of Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada in 1982. The Northey family remembers their child in a very special way through the Kelly Northey Legacy Fund which provides endowments to fund information, education and support programs, particularly for young patients with brain tumours.

Members of the Kelly Society are generous individuals who lead by example, making significant contributions to Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada over a period of three years. The Kelly Society was created to thank these leaders. Membership is exclusive to individuals who commit to making a minimum gift of $500 per year for three years.

For one member of the Kelly Society, a brain tumour survivor himself, this type of support is about giving back to others affected by a brain tumour, to help them find the hope to overcome the disease. Read Ben's story, "Giving to Support a Connected Brain Tumour Community."

  • $ 500 per year for 3 years

Pablo's Story: The real blessing in all of this

In 2010, Pablo found himself in the ER eight times within six weeks. Intense headaches, drastic weight loss, jaundice, dizziness, and lapses in time were repeatedly dismissed by doctors, but Pablo knew that something was very wrong. Choosing to advocate for his health when others might have given up, Pablo sought out the opinion of his family practitioner and his persistence may have, in fact, saved his life. An MRI revealed a grade IV atypical meningioma on Pablo’s brain.
