There are so many ways you can help make a difference in the lives of patients and families today.
In keeping with federal and provincial health regulations to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, and to protect our community and ourselves, Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada is cancelling all in-person support groups and BrainWAVE/GOcervo events from now until June 30. 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 newest initiative, #SupportAtHome.
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.
In the meantime, 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.
In the interest of our community’s safety, and in light of the challenges presented by COVID-19, we have taken our walk online in 2020. Skip, dance, walk, jog on the spot – however you decide to take part, know that you’ll be joining thousands of people across Canada on one day for one cause – to #EndBrainTumours.
Register now to connect with our community across Canada on Saturday, June 27 to celebrate and support everyone affected by a brain tumour including our survivors, caregivers, health care professionals and researchers who are leading the way in finding the cause of and cure for brain tumours.
Because every day in this country, 27 people will hear the words, “you have a brain tumour.”
Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada is here for all of them, as a source of love and support, and as an advocate and funder of vital research into a cure for brain tumours. We can’t do this without you.
How you decide to take part in the Virtual Brain Tumour Walk is up to you. Walk, dance, run on the spot – get creative! No matter where you are, or how you choose to take part, we will do it together.
