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.
