Health Care Professional (HCP) Ambassadors

We are seeking one to two key contacts at every treatment, cancer centre and brain tumour teams across the country we can rely on to update their neuro-oncology, neuroscience, and psycho-social oncology teams on the newest resources and information from Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.

These contacts will help promote the Brain Tumour Handbooks and other resources to encourage colleagues to distribute the resources to people affected by a brain tumour, distribute information to team members and to help reduce waste.

To best serve patients and families across Canada, the goal is to have representation from all neuro-oncology and neuroscience teams.

In the summer of 2017, while at work, I had my first episode of what I would now call vertigo or double vision. It was something I've never experienced before.

I brushed it off and continued on with the day.
