Hats for Hope

Today, 27 Canadians will learn they have a brain tumour 1.

Today, 8 Canadians will learn they have brain cancer 2. That’s 3,000 Canadians each year.

Additionally, everyday a further 19 Canadians will learn that they have a non-malignant brain tumour 3. Non-malignant brain tumours can be just as life-altering.

Hats for Hope is a national brain tumour awareness campaign that provides hope for those affected. Hope through support. Hope through research. Hope for a cure.

New this year, we will be selling Hats for Hope toques with proceeds going to fund much needed hope for those affected by a brain tumour.
