Order an Awareness Kit

Over 120 reasons to give and one motive why – for HOPE!

There are over 120 different types of brain tumours (both malignant and non-malignant) and with your fundraising, you make it possible for us to provide specialized programs to support those affected and critical research to find the cause of and a cure for the disease.

Dress Down Days

Dress Down Days are a great, fun way, for you to raise some funds for Brain Tumour Awareness Month at your workplace. 

First, you need to ask your workplace for permission to run the event. Then each person in your office comes to work in grey clothing and makes a donation. Use the awareness kit to explain why funds are so greatly needed for the estimated 27 people diagnosed with a brain tumour each day. 

Request a Brain Tumour Awareness Kit

Your kit will include a small stand with flyers, brochures, posters, a Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada coin box and grey awareness ribbons.

With these tools, you can raise awareness about brain tumours and the need for funds to bring hope and support to the 27 Canadians diagnosed every day with a brain tumour. It's a great way to pay tribute to the courage of a loved one affected and to connect with others.

Awareness kits can be used at work, school or in your community and we can work with you to customize the kit to meet your needs. We will ship these to Canadian addresses only.

Thank you!

Don't forget, we'd love to know what you are doing! Send us your photos and stories about your awareness and fundraising efforts in action and we'll share them with the rest of the brain tumour community! We want to see you rolling pennies, putting up posters, sharing your story and anything else you're up to this May! 

Donate now to support patients and families in honour of Brain Tumour Awareness MonthYou can donate to support the brain tumour community today. Your one-time, tribute or recurring gift brings hope to all Canadians affected by a brain tumour. Thank you.

Roy and the Gamma Knife – A Happy Tale

I had headaches, almost daily, for 10 years or more. It was a rare day if I did not have a headache. I used to joke that I should own stock in headache remedy companies. I also had a lot of night sweats, non-restful sleep, and trouble regulating my body temperature. All these symptoms both my GP and I put off to stress.
