Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Every September, we raise awareness to change this for a brighter future.

Caregivers

Caregiver support groups are all about giving caregivers a safe and understanding environment to talk openly about their experiences, and seek support in a group of peers. 

Brain Tumour Support Groups help survivors, family and caregivers in a number of ways: 

  • Providing connections with others who have faced life with a brain tumour thereby offering reassurance, reducing feelings of isolation and reinforcing a positive, hopeful attitude.
  • Sharing practical information to:
    • Help make informed decisions about brain tumour treatment options
    • Learn about relevant community resources
    • Enhance coping skills in order to reduce anxiety, feelings of loss of control and fear of the unknown, changes in family roles, and financial strain as a result of a brain tumour diagnosis.

If you are looking for more immediate support, we encourage you to register for the Virtual Support Group or join one of our Private Facebook Support Groups. Thank you.

There are two groups:

  1. Eastern Canada meets on the 3rd Monday of every month from 7:30-8:30 pm EST – see the schedule for the next event
  2. Western Canada meets on the 1st Tuesday of every month at 7:30-8:30 pm MST – see the schedule for the next event

Please join whichever group best fits your schedule, or both.

Please register a few business days in advance of the first meeting that you wish to attend by calling us at 1-800-265-5106 or completing the form below.
