Have you been recently diagnosed? Are you a family member, friend or colleague of someone who has? The Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada has incredible resources for patients and caregivers. Online, telephone, person to person support groups. This website has facts – facts on the 120 different types of tumour we now know of, facts on research and so much more. Many decisions need to be made in sometimes very short periods of time. Decisions that need to be made in the midst of emotional turmoil. The Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada exists to provide support during and after this time.
I was only one of many people interviewed at the National Brain Tumour Conference held last October in Toronto. Survivors, family members, those living with a tumour (over 55,000 Canadians) came together to learn from and with each other. Truly powerful.
