Care and Support
You can find connections and lean on others who have experienced the diagnosis of a brain tumour.
Every day, 27 Canadians will hear the words “you have a brain tumour”. Brain tumours are unpredictable and complex. They can affect anyone at any time. They can affect vision, hearing, memory, balance, and mobility. Their effects are physical, emotional, financial, and last a lifetime.
The Brain Tumour Walk is an opportunity to come together across Canada to celebrate and remember our heroes. We walk with a united goal – to see an end to brain tumours.
With every dollar, you make it possible for people affected by a brain tumour to live with hope.
You make it possible for critical research to advance, trusted education to spread, and compassionate support to continue.
You make it possible to take steps towards a cure.
“My dad lost his battle just 10 days before my 7th birthday (1 day after my mom’s 37th birthday). This year marks 30 years without him, so I am walking in memory of him.”
– Ashley, Corner Brook
“My brother-in-law Derek fought an 11-month battle with a grade 4 tumor. He was and is still the bravest and most incredible person I’ve ever met. Miss you so much Derek.”
– Stephen, Halifax
“I, Charles Grace, was diagnosed with a Grade 2 IDH mutated Astrocytoma in 2021. After experiencing some focal seizures in late May and a couple of trips to the ER a CT scan in late June found the tumour. A right frontal craniotomy followed on August 4th, 2021, where my neurosurgeon was able to remove 99% of the tumour. I am currently undergoing my 6 weeks of radiation (4 treatments left as of this writing) which will be followed by 9 months of PCV chemotherapy. I look forward to partaking in this annual walk for many, many years to come to raise both awareness and funds for this community.”
