Of the 27 people diagnosed with a brain tumour every day in Canada, 8 of those will find out they have brain cancer. Malignant or not, brain tumours are life-altering and treatment options are limited and often invasive.
Hope, however, is limitless.
Together let’s share some HOPE!
On October 24, 2020, recognize Brain Cancer Awareness Day by wearing your hat and spreading hope.
Hope through research.
Hope through support.
Hope for a cure.
It all started back in 2018…
Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada had the House of Commons declare October 24,
the very first Brain Cancer Awareness Day in Canada.
It also marked the very first Hats for Hope campaign, which saw Canadians put on their hats in support of brain cancer awareness, posting photos on social media with the hashtag, #HatsforHope.
In 2019, Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada took it a step further, selling thousands of Hats for Hope toques, raising funds as well as awareness. The campaign was a huge success, reaching millions of people on social media.
We are back with new toques this year (now sold out!), and looking forward to seeing everyone’s posts on Brain Cancer Awareness Day October 24 – or any day during International Brain Tumour Awareness Week, October 24 – October 31, 2020.
Don’t forget to wear a hat, take a photo, and share it using
the hashtag #HatsForHope and tag @braintumourfdn.
Mark your calendar and help us rally the community!
Organize a #HatsForHope Team Toque Day – work with your office, school, team mates, or friends to wear hats and collect funds to provide hope to Canadians affected by a brain tumour. Be sure to share them using #HatsForHope!
Consider a donation. All funds will go towards research into brain tumours and supporting those currently living with this condition.Donate
