BrainWAVE Program

Fun and support for families on the journey with a pediatric brain tumour

If you are looking for a way to provide fun and support for your child and family as you face the journey with a pediatric brain tumour, consider joining BrainWAVE.

BrainWAVE is a support program for families with a child (19 years of age or younger) with a brain tumour. Through the program, BrainWAVE offers you and your child/teen the opportunity to connect with other families in a similar situation and to obtain much-needed support, information and education.

Several times a year, BrainWAVE families have the opportunity to meet and relax through fun activities such as trips to sports events, historical sites and other family attractions. These free events give all members of the immediate family a welcome break from treatments and doctors' visits.

All activities are planned and organized by volunteers on the BrainWAVE Committees. 

BrainWAVE operates in Lower Mainland British Columbia, Alberta (alternately between Calgary and Edmonton), Southwestern Ontario, and in Quebec as BrainWAVE / GOcervo!

This reality does not stop Stephanie from her tireless efforts to reduce the stigma of having a brain tumour. Learn why Stephanie is urging all Canadians to make every brain tumour count.
