Send us a Hat (virtually)!

Not just any hat, but one that pays tribute to someone diagnosed with a brain tumour.

What kind of hats?

Any kind of hat - caps, turbans, beanies, baby bonnets, ten-gallon hats. As these hats can be of great sentimental value, please send a digital photograph of the hat and we will add it to the Virtual Display.

What kind of tribute?

Please let us know the person's name (if you wish) and a few words to describe the individual or his or her journey with a brain tumour. You are welcome to also include a photograph. 

Become a part of the virtual Hat Tribute.

Share your story with us and upload a digital photograph of the hat for the virtual display.

Please note: If you have sent us a hat, it is already a part of the traveling display.
