2010 Report to the Community

2010 Report to the brain tumour communityTwo thousand and ten was a year of growth for Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. Our impact in the brain tumour community continued to evolve and extend to new research initiatives, increased program and service opportunities, and additional educational events.

This was achieved through the generous contributions and gifts from our committed donors, partners and volunteers.

During the past year our donors continued to support our efforts through all areas of our fundraising endeavours. This dedication, and with a favourable outcome of revenues over expenditures, allowed us to allocate additional funds to further build our research program and the organization’s sustainability fund.

In this report to you, our community, we extend our heartfelt appreciation for the positive impact of your support. Together we will find the cause of and cure for brain tumours, while improving the quality of life for those affected.

 

In 2010, Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada took on a variety of new projects in an effort to continue to reach the over 55,000 people across Canada affected by brain tumours.

We introduced our Facebook and Twitter profiles and focused on the re-launch of BrainTumour.ca. These three initiatives bring you different ways to connect with others in the community, and seek out information and support essential to those facing the journey with a brain tumour.

His Auntie May discouraged it from the start saying, “You are both Sagittarians and should NOT be together.” My daughter Isobel did a quick calculation. Fun fact. In a group of 100 people there is a 2.8% chance of two people having the same birthday.
