DOUBLE your investment in the future of childhood brain cancer research

Because of kids’ growing brains and bodies, chemotherapy and radiation are detrimental to their ongoing development. Those who do survive a brain cancer diagnosis are often left with devastating side effects that change their lives forever –  kids like Jax, who was just 21 months old when diagnosed and has battled brain cancer for five years.

Jax says Thank YOU!Surviving childhood brain cancer isn’t enough. Our kids deserve to thrive. Donate now and your gift DOUBLES in value!
 
All donations made to this unique Impact Grant are matched, dollar for dollar, through our partnership with Brain Canada. Your lifesaving gift will double to propel childhood brain cancer research forward, even faster!
 
 
Jax says "Thank You!!"
 
 
 
  

About the Pediatric Brain Tumour Impact Grant

Dr Michael TaylorProminent brain cancer researcher, Dr. Michael Taylor, was the first to discover that medulloblastoma wasn’t just one form of brain cancer, but four distinct types — each with their own DNA footprint.
 
Now Dr. Taylor and his team of researchers want to know how each type of medulloblastoma changes in response to treatment, and how to develop personalized care for every child diagnosed, so the most aggressive treatments are used only on the most aggressive brain cancers.
