Through the support of donors and volunteers, we take action and provide programs for every Canadian affected by a brain tumour. We provide information including handbooks, storybooks, information sheets, videos and a comprehensive website and we facilitate education events and support group meetings. The brain tumour reasearch field is in incredibly complex and so we fund the research projects at Canadian universities and hospitals that are invemtigating treatment improvements, quality of life and cures. We also leverage funds by supporting international collaborations investigating strategically important brain tumour insights and ensure the ongoing funding of the London-based Brain Tumour tissue Bank supporting the global research effort
Leading the establishment of the Canadian Brain tumour Registry, to count every person with a brain tumour in Canada is a critical next step to understanding the impact of the disease across the country. Educating health care professionals and all levels of government on the specific issues and needs of Canadians living with a brain tumour supports the mission to reeach every Canadian affected by a brain tumour.
