Health Care Professional (HCP) Ambassadors

We are seeking one to two key contacts at every treatment, cancer centre and brain tumour teams across the country we can rely on to update their neuro-oncology, neuroscience, and psycho-social oncology teams on the newest resources and information from Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.

These contacts will help promote the Brain Tumour Handbooks and other resources to encourage colleagues to distribute the resources to people affected by a brain tumour, distribute information to team members and to help reduce waste.

To best serve patients and families across Canada, the goal is to have representation from all neuro-oncology and neuroscience teams.

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.
