My Story, Your Story – Let’s Tell Government!

May is Brain Tumour Awareness Month

Thank you to everyone who shared your story about the impact of a brain tumour with elected officials across Canada.

Thank you to everyone who shared your experience with the health care system, talked about access to drugs, the need for increased funding for research and why we need to count every brain tumour during Brain Tumour Awareness Month.

From the need for equal access to treatments to the importance of counting every brain tumour, we must continue to tell government what needs to be done for the 55,000 Canadians living with a brain tumour.
