Brain Tumour Awareness Month

Help raise awareness about brain tumours

Tell your story to government

Governments across Canada must understand the impact of a brain tumour and why research and advocacy for this community is so important. You can share your story with elected officials from all parties so they can work on ensuring every brain tumour is counted and that patients have access to the care and treatment they deserve! Bookmark this page for the link to share your story with government starting October 1 or be sure you're signed up as an Advocate and we'll email you the link directly.

Share with your community

  • Follow Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube and share videos and images during the month of October.
  • Let people know about the signs and symptoms of a brain tumour, send out 10 facts about the disease, and more.
  • Write a letter to the editor of your local paper with our tips and sample letter

Put up an awareness display

Armed with materials and information, you can help educate others about brain tumours and their impact on anyone affected. Request an Awareness Kit and set up a display so others can learn more about the disease and the stories of courage and strength that empower survivors and their loved ones. Order your kit right now.

Help make “cents” of brain tumours

When you wear an awareness bracelet or take a sip of your morning coffee from a Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada travel mug, you show your support for the 27 Canadians diagnosed every day. From grey ribbon pins to water bottles, there’s something for everyone in the Awareness Store.
