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:

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."
