Hats for Hope

27 Canadians are diagnosed with a brain tumour every day. 

Today, 8 Canadians will learn they have brain cancer.1 That's 3,000 Canadians each year. 

In addition, everyday a further 19 Canadians will learn that they have a non-malignant brain tumour.2 Non-malignant brain tumours can be just as life-altering as malignant tumours.

Hats for Hope, a nation-wide brain tumour awareness campaign, provides hope for those affected. Hope through support. Hope through research. Hope for a cure.
 
Join us on October 24, 2019 – the second annual Brain Cancer Awareness Day in Canada – or any day in International Brain Tumour Awareness Week, October 26 - November 2, 2019, by wearing a hat, taking a selfie or group photo, and sharing it on social using #HatsForHope and tagging @braintumourfdn.
 
New for 2019, you are able to buy a Hats For Hope toque! You can buy these toques here
 
Proceeds from the sale of the hats and funds donated in support of Hats for Hope, will ensure that Canadians find hope. Hope through support. Hope through research. Hope for a cure.
 

 

 

Thank you!
