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.
 
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!

This reality does not stop Stephanie from her tireless efforts to reduce the stigma of having a brain tumour. Learn why Stephanie is urging all Canadians to make every brain tumour count.
