30 Years of Impact

Thanks to the generosity donors and the determination of volunteers across Canada, thousands of brain tumour patients have found hope and support since 1982. Below are just a few of things accomplished since Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada begin in 1982.

  • Funded over 100 brain tumour research projects
  • Developed the world-leading Brain Tumour Patient Handbooks
