Learn about all the progress made in the 2013 Impact Report

From finding information through resources, relief through support, respite at events, and change through advocacy – it all happens because people like you give.

In 2013, $3.32 million was raised, thank you.

Included in the report is the impact made for patients and research as well as an overview of financials.

As we move forward, we have a keen focus on the following challenges:

  • We don’t know enough about the disease – with more than 120 different tumour types, the disease is complex and often life-threatening
  •  There is no comprehensive Canadian brain tumour data
  • We need to keep the best and brightest researchers
  • There are life-long educational challenges for pediatric brain tumour survivors
  • Reaching Canadians in all regions of the country

With your support, we can address these critical needs.

Thank you for the generous gift of your time, your stories and your donations. You make all the work to change the future possible.

Childhood Brain Tumour Signs & Symptoms

Earlier this year, you gave us your feedback in a survey on brain tumour signs and symptoms. One of the things we did with that survey was to compile a list of the most common signs & symptoms for children. Now, as part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we are sharing compelling quotes from that survey and urging you to share them with this link to see the symptoms: www.braintumour.ca/symptoms. Thank you!
