There are few feelings greater than seeing a pediatric brain tumour patient overcome their diagnosis and pursue their life goals. It exemplifies hope, and the promise of bigger, better things.
At Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, we want to do everything we can for our young community members. Living with a brain tumour and the after-effects of treatment aren’t easy, and neither is making the jump to post-secondary education.
