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.

Liz's Story of Giving Back

As we celebrate National Volunteer Week (April 23-29, 2017) we thank all of our 700+ volunteers. Without each contribution, we would not be able to offer the programs, services and events that we do. Each person volunteers in a different way and for different reasons. For Liz, giving back to Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada as a volunteer was a “no brainer”. Learn why Liz, a brain tumour survivor, decided to get involved.
