Public Service Announcements

In 2015, we launched a new Bilingual Public Service Announcement for Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. Help us to:

"Beat the Flatline"

 


 

Early in 2012, members of the film and television industry from Canada and the United States came together to produce three Public Service Announcements for Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. This effort was the result of the wish of 46-year old brain tumour activist Rob Blair who lost his 13-year battle with a brain tumour in August 2011. Near the end of his life, he expressed to his brother, filmmaker David Ray, a desire that he carry on his awareness raising efforts.

Rob's request was that David uses his talent and expertise to create a Public Service Announcement for the organization that supported him while he braved this devastating disease, Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.  The three commercials below are the result of this effort. Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada is extremely grateful for the support of the community that has produced these pieces.

"Balloons"

"Puzzle"

"Darts"

If you can help get these commercials on your local television station, please contact:

Pablo's Story: The real blessing in all of this

In 2010, Pablo found himself in the ER eight times within six weeks. Intense headaches, drastic weight loss, jaundice, dizziness, and lapses in time were repeatedly dismissed by doctors, but Pablo knew that something was very wrong. Choosing to advocate for his health when others might have given up, Pablo sought out the opinion of his family practitioner and his persistence may have, in fact, saved his life. An MRI revealed a grade IV atypical meningioma on Pablo’s brain.
