The full team of Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada recently met with our co-founders, Dr. Rolando and Pamela Del Maestro, and all wore grey for the day! See a picture here. We are now encouraging all Canadians to raise awareness for Brain Tumour Awareness Month by wearing Grey! Clothing, hats, fingernails, Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada merchandise, it all counts! Share your story about how you wore Grey for the Day here and maybe we will share it on social media.
Here's a video that Claire shared with us:

Brain Tumour Awareness Month is a great opportunity to raise awareness and also a great opportunity for fundraising. How much you want to do, is up to you!
If you are fundraising, here are some significant amounts to bear in mind:
When an odd stroke of luck ended up with Winnipeg firefighter Rick Negrich getting a CT scan, the last thing he expected was to be diagnosed with a brain tumour. In January 2013, Rick was working a Friday on-shift at a local firehall when his crew got a call. While on dispatch to the scene, Rick’s fire truck was t-boned at an intersection, with Rick’s head hitting the side of the truck so hard he saw stars. Paramedics were soon on site and recommended Rick visit the ER for a check-up.Learn more
