Northey Family Library

The Northey Family Library was established in 2005 as a source of brain tumour information to support anyone affected by a brain tumour.

There are more than 30 topics explored including brain tumours, nutrition, personal stories and much more.

Each section has a list of books related to that topic as well as external links to other community programs and services.

If you live in or near London, Ontario or visiting and would like to come in for a visit to browse our materials, we would love to meet you in person.

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.
