Raise Awareness

Raising awareness about brain tumours and Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada is critical to helping to reach the 55,000 Canadians living with a brain tumour.

Brain tumours are unpredictable and complex. Brain tumours don’t discriminate; they affect people of all ages and backgrounds. They can affect vision, hearing, memory, balance and mobility. Its effects are physical, emotional, financial, and last a lifetime. Lifting this burden for anyone affected is our goal.

In 2016 we will be joining with the United States of America to Turn May Grey for Brain Tumour Awareness Month! Learn more.

In September, we will be joining the Protect Your Peepers campaign, encouraging all Canadians to book an optometrist appointment.  

We will also join people around the world by contributing to International Brain Tumour Awareness Week from October 22-29, 2016.

You can make an impact on brain tumours’ vast reach when you help to raise awareness about the disease and Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.  Join the Movement to End Brain Tumours!
