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.

“Great event – thank you so much – we would never have been able to bring our family here without this event by BrainWAVE!” – From a BrainWAVE parent.

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