About the Partners

Kids need to more than survive brain cancer. They deserve to thrive.

Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada has committed to raise $625,000 and is working in partnership with Brain Canada and the Canadian Cancer Society's matching-gift program to fund Dr. Taylor's reality changing, $1.25 million research project into childhood brain cancer.

Gifts made to the Pediatric Brain Cancer Impact Grant, were doubled as part of this special matching-gift collaboration between the three health organizations.

Thanks to the generousity of donors, the goal of $1.25 million dollars was reached in 2018, meaning that this project will be fully funded.

These lifesaving gifts will propel childhood brain cancer research forward, even faster!

This does not mean that the fight to end childhood brain cancer is over. More work must be done to find a cure for this devastating disease.

Help kids do more than survive brain cancer - help them thrive.

Tracey’s Story: Hope and Optimism

Headaches are like house guests. Some come and go. Others don’t want to leave; and become a real nuisance. Tracey’s headache lasted a full 6 months but it still wasn’t enough of a warning sign. What she had was a tumour in her brain, discovered when it caused hydrocephalus, put her in a coma for two days and she was just hours from death. Four brain surgeries later, Tracey is here to tell her story, and importantly, how she found ways to remain optimistic in the face of grave adversity.
