Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada Tools and Connections

You can gain support and information about all things happening in the brain tumour community in Canada with a variety of print and electronic newsletters available to you. These newsletters offer personal stories, information about advances in research, coming events, opportunities to learn, gain information and support and the many ways you can help. You can sign up to receive as many or as few of these communications as you wish.

In the Online Peer Support Centre, you gain access to an active group of brain tumour community message boards. Take a look around and listen to what other people affected by a brain tumour are talking about. Everyone is welcome to read along and learn from our message boards.

When you choose to join the Online Peer Support Centre, you can reply to message board postings and start your own discussions. Our message boards are a great place to ask and get answers to your questions, share your story and support others who are living with cancer. Sign up to join the conversation today.
