My Story, Your Story – Let’s Tell Government!

May is Brain Tumour Awareness Month

Thank you to everyone who shared your story about the impact of a brain tumour with elected officials across Canada.

This May so many of you asked for Brain Tumour Awareness Month to be changed from October to May and in doing so shared your experience with the health care system, talked about access to drugs, the need for increased funding for research and why we need to count every brain tumour.

From the need for equal access to treatments to the importance of counting every brain tumour, we must continue to tell government what needs to be done for the 55,000 Canadians living with a brain tumour.

Awareness Statement in the House of Commons

May 13, 2016: Thank you to the House of Commons for providing permission to share this clip of Mr. Bill Casey, M.P. when he spoke about Brain Tumour Awareness Month during Debates.

If you want to be kept 'in the loop' and be one of the first to know about these kinds of opportunities in the future, sign up to be an advocate. We need you.

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.
