Raise Awareness

Raising awareness about brain tumours and Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada is critical to helping to reach the 55,000 Canadians living with a brain tumour.

Brain tumours are unpredictable and complex. Brain tumours don’t discriminate; they affect people of all ages and backgrounds. They can affect vision, hearing, memory, balance and mobility. Its effects are physical, emotional, financial, and last a lifetime. Lifting this burden for anyone affected is our goal.
