Hats for Hope

Today, 8 Canadians will learn they have brain cancer. That's 3,000 Canadians each year. That's why we have launched Hats for Hope a nation-wide brain cancer awareness campaign and are calling on all Canadians to pledge support for brain cancer research. Join us in International Brain Tumour Awareness Week, October 20 - 27, 2018, or on October 24, 2018 – the first Brain Cancer Awareness Day in Canada – by wearing a hat, taking a selfie or group photo, and sharing it on social using #HatsForHope
