Brain Tumour Information Days

A day of hope and support

2016 National Conference!

In 2016 we are truly making a day of hope and support.  

We are amalgamating our efforts and resources from various Information Day Conferences to create a National Conference and educational journey rich with insights from the research brain tumour community and various experts.

There are no planned Information Days occurring in 2016 except for a French education program in Montreal that will occur concurrently with the National Conference.

Find out more about how you can Join the Movement to End Brain Tumours at the National Conference.

Words of Wisdom: What Brain Tumour Information Day Means to Me


Information Day events offer hope and support to patients, caregivers and survivors by providing the opportunity to connect with others on the brain tumour journey as well as with health care professionals in the top of the field of neuroscience and oncology.

Topics covered at the events can include brain tumour basics, surgery, non-malignant brain tumours, pediatric brain tumours and quality of life issues. There are opportunities to hear exciting speakers, connect with experts and find others on the brain tumour journey.

Meagan's Story: The best Christmas gift...

The best Christmas gift I could get would be to get this lump of coal out of my head. However, I do have good days. And recently, a lot more good days than bad. This is how I know that I will overcome this. This is how I know that my “new normal” won’t be so bad. One day at a time, and counting everything I am grateful for along the way.
