Online Community

BrainTumour.ca is the central hub of the online brain tumour community in Canada.

Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada Tools and Connections

Our hope is that in this online group you will gain access to an active group of brain tumour patients, survivors, parents and other caregivers who will be asking questions, answering your questions and sharing stories of hope and support.

In the Online Peer Support Centre, you gain access to an active group of brain tumour community message boards. Take a look around and listen to what other people affected by a brain tumour are talking about. Everyone is welcome to read along and learn from our message boards.

When you choose to join the Online Peer Support Centre, you can reply to message board postings and start your own discussions. Our message boards are a great place to ask and get answers to your questions, share your story and support others who are living with cancer. Sign up to join the conversation today.

You can also find the brain tumour community online with a variety of other tools including:

Gain peer support in a safe, relaxed atmosphere from the comfort of your home. There are currently five online groups: a group for French language speakers, a group for Caregivers, a group just for Caregivers of a child affected by a brain tumour and two groups for patients and survivors in Western and Eastern Canada! .

You can gain support and information about all things happening in the brain tumour community in Canada with a variety of print and electronic newsletters available to you. These newsletters offer personal stories, information about advances in research, coming events, opportunities to learn, gain information and support and the many ways you can help. You can sign up to receive as many or as few of these communications as you wish.

Messages from our CEO, People of Note, Messages of Support, Friend Friday, all this and more can be found on our blog.
