There are so many ways you can help make a difference in the lives of patients and families today.
In order to protect the safety of our community, all of our in-person support groups have been cancelled until the New Year 2021. However, there are a number of locations that have moved their support groups online. Check your city here, and see if your local group is still meeting.
If there is no group in your area, we encourage you to register for our regional support groups here.
One-On-One Support is Available:
Contact Support Staff today: 1-800-265-5106 or locally 519-642-7755. Calls are answered Monday to Friday, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm (EST).

Connect you with our support staff in an open and meaningful way through our new Community Call-In and Facebook Q&A sessions.
(Brought to you by our Support Group Program)
Our Community Call-In series allows our community to ask questions of our support staff in real time, gaining new insights into various aspects of Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada’s support services network. At times, these call-ins feature guest speakers from a number of brain tumour-related areas such as therapy, medicine, and personal support. They are led by Todd Goold, Support Services Specialist and Janic Gorayeb, Senior Health Education & Engagement Specialist at Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.
