Hats for Hope

Hats for Hope is a movement to raise awareness for brain cancer in Canada.

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!

Thank you for helping us raise awareness for Brain Cancer by wearing your hat and spreading hope.

Hope through research.
Hope through support.
Hope for a cure.

About Hats for Hope

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.

Since 2019, Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada sold thousands of Hats for Hope toques, raising funds as well as awareness for brain cancer. Over the years, the campaign helped reach millions of people on social media.

Our unique and custom toque is not available anywhere else. We are looking forward to seeing everyone’s posts on Brain Cancer Awareness Day October 24, during International Brain Tumour Awareness Week, October 29 – November 5, 2022 or any day of the year!

Don’t forget to wear a hat, take a photo, and share it using

the hashtag #HatsForHope and tag @braintumourfdn.
