One-on-One Support

You can gain one-on-one support from via email and phone.

Emotional support is available to you whether you are a newly diagnosed patient, a caregiver who just needs someone to listen or a family member of someone affected by a brain tumour. No matter what stage you are in on the journey with a brain tumour, help is here.

Staff are available Monday to Friday, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm (EST) to listen and offer support. We provide a warm, listening ear for anyone who is worried, scared, sad, overwhelmed or needs someone to talk to because of the impact of a brain tumour (on yourself or loved one). Support calls are confidential, caring and non-judgmental.

Still have questions? Check out the FAQ for One on Support.

I brushed it off and continued on with the day.
