Online Community

BrainTumour.ca is the central hub of the online brain tumour community in Canada.

Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada Tools and Connections

In these online groups you will gain access to an active group of brain tumour patients, survivors, parents and other caregivers who are asking questions, answering your questions and sharing stories of hope and support.

Gain peer support in a safe, relaxed atmosphere from the comfort of your home. There are five online groups: a group for French language speakers, two groups for Caregivers (Western and Eastern Canada), and two groups for patients and survivors (Western and Eastern Canada)!

You can gain support and information about all things happening in the brain tumour community in Canada. These newsletters offer personal stories, information about advances in research, coming events, opportunities to learn, gain information and support and the many ways you can help. You can sign up to receive as many or as few of these communications as you wish.

Messages from our CEO, People of Note, Messages of Support, Friend Friday, all this and more can be found on our blog.

Janet and Adam's Story: Beating the odds to share another birthday together

Turning the same age, on the same day as my husband, never gets old. They call us, Astro-Twins. According to many different sources, the odds were low that it would have lasted. His Auntie May discouraged it from the start saying, “You are both Sagittarians and should NOT be together.” My daughter Isobel did a quick calculation. Fun fact. In a group of 100 people there is a 2.8% chance of two people having the same birthday.
