A Message of Courage

We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Gord Downie.

Statement from The Tragically Hip Website

We will continue our message of courage for all Canadians who have been affected by a brain tumour. 

We are here for all Canadians who have been affected by a brain tumour,
with support, education, information and research.

Every day, 27 Canadians hear the words "You have a brain tumour".  At least, that's what we think.  We don't actually know, as not all brain tumours are counted in Canada.  We want to change that.  Find out more.

If you are wondering what the signs and symptoms of a brain tumour are, find out more.

If you want to learn more about brain tumours, (there are 120+ types!) find out more.

If you are newly diagnosed and want to learn more about our handbooks, children's story book, support groups, BrainWAVE program for children and other support tools, find out more.

Canadians who have been affected by brain tumours are strong, courageous people. We are here to support you. We are here to listen. We are just a phone call away. Please call us on 1-800-265-5106.  

donate buttonHelp for Canadians affected by a brain tumour occurs because of the generosity of people like you. Programs and services as well as critical research is funded solely through contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations. 
Thank you!
