Kelly Society

The Kelly Society was named for the special little girl who inspired the creation of Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada in 1982. The Northey family remembers their child in a very special way through the Kelly Northey Legacy Fund which provides endowments to fund information, education and support programs, particularly for young patients with brain tumours.

Members of the Kelly Society are generous individuals who lead by example, making significant contributions to Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada over a period of three years. The Kelly Society was created to thank these leaders. Membership is exclusive to individuals who commit to making a minimum gift of $500 per year for three years.

For one member of the Kelly Society, a brain tumour survivor himself, this type of support is about giving back to others affected by a brain tumour, to help them find the hope to overcome the disease. Read Ben's story, "Giving to Support a Connected Brain Tumour Community."

  • $ 500 per year for 3 years

Courtney’s Story of Stability

Stability. It’s a strange concept when you have what it known to be a progressive, life long illness. You hear the words, “Your tumour growth is stable” and for a moment you think someone is playing the world’s worst prank on you.
