Pediatric and Family Support

Like adults, children have questions, fears and feelings of helplessness when they or someone they care about are diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Support and information services to help children and families understand what is happening to them, their siblings, parents or loved ones is available, including:

Comments from BrainWAVE parents:

BrainWAVE kids at Heritage Park, June 2019



"It was a great event, we stayed till 5pm. Sitara and Arya had a fabulous time together in Heritage Park. They went on all of the rides, some of them twice. It’s amazing to see them going through so much and still smiling like there’s no tomorrow."
 


 

 

 

 

 

AB BrainWAVE families at WEM World Waterpark

 

"Great event – thank you so much – we would never have been able to bring our family here without this event by BrainWAVE!"

 
 

 

BrainWAVE at the Toronto Blue Jays July 2017

 

"Just wanted to thank you again. With the long journey with Josh, I had forgotten what it's like really to just be able to relax and take in a ball game and have fun. Thank you!"

 

 

 

Sibling to a brain tumour survivor and his Dad enjoying London Knights tickets generously donated to BrainWAVE

 

"Thanks again for the amazing (London Knights) tickets. The boys enjoyed their night out with just the two of them. It's because of generously donated tickets that my son can enjoy time spent just with his Dad, which as a sibling of a Brain Tumour survivor can mean the world."

Piper's Story: a dream more precious than Olympic gold

Hi, I am Piper Gilles. You may know me as a world-famous ice dancer. I competed in the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games. I am a 7 time world team member and a 7 time Canadian medalist. But the title that means the most to me is far more personal. It’s that of daughter to my amazing mother Bonnie Gilles, who I lost to glioblastoma on May 27, 2018.
