2009 Report to the Community

2009 Report to the brain tumour community
During 2009 generous donations of money, time and talent brought hope to even more people affected by brain tumours across Canada.

Our donors continued to be generous and dedicated to supporting the efforts of Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. As a result of a favourable outcome of revenues over expenditures, we were able to allocate a substantial portion of this excess to our growing focus on funding research grants, as well as to the development of an updated and more user-friendly website in 2010.

In this report back to you, our community, we extend our sincerest 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.

Together we will change the future of brain tumour research and patient care. Together we will find a cure.
