Media

Every day, 27 Canadians learn they have a brain tumour.

Reaching the 55,000 Canadians affected by a brain tumour is the mission of Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada and critical to this, is awareness about support, information, education and research.

Media across Canada are important partners in this effort as we work together to create meaningful and impactful stories that are important to your audience. We want to work with you to share information about this devastating disease, to promote the important support and information services offered, to talk about advances in research and provide opportunities for Canadians to get involved no matter where they live.

We can offer medical and research expertise as well as personal stories from communities across Canada. We also have three television Public Service Announcements available.
