There are so many ways you can help make a difference in the lives of patients and families today.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada is cancelling all in-person support groups and BrainWAVE/GOcervo events until September 1.
This is a temporary measure aimed at reducing the risk of transmission to our most vulnerable population, our staff, and our volunteers.
Support is at the heart of what we do, which is why we have been working diligently to develop and expand our virtual programs with our #SupportAtHome initiative.
Some in-person support groups have moved online due to community demand. Click here to see if there is a virtual meeting in your area.
Our goal is to bring our support services directly into your home, as well as our pediatric BrainWAVE and GOcervo programs. More virtual programming means even in these trying times, no one affected by a brain tumour will walk alone.
Our staff will continue working remotely until further notice, though our office will still be receiving mail and packages. We ask that all other communications be done through telephone or electronically.
As the situation continues to evolve, we will be regularly updating our website, and ask you check back in frequently to stay up to date. For more information on COVID-19 and how to keep yourself and your families safe, visit the Public Health Agency of Canada website.
We could not have predicted the circumstances leading to our first Virtual Brain Tumour Walk, but the support we received from more than 3,600 walkers raising an incredible $1.1 million with donations still coming in.
We are extending our 27 Canadians Challenge until August 31, so you still have plenty of time to get your very own Brain Tumour Walk buff.
Note: Some in-person support groups have gone virtual. Please check the Support At Home page to see if the group in your area is one of them.
