About Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada
The Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada (BTFC) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to reaching every person in Canada affected by a brain tumor with support, education and information, and to funding brain tumor research. Established in 1982, the foundation is committed to providing support through national brain tumor support groups and meeting the information needs of those affected by brain tumors with educational materials. These materials include brain tumour patient resource handbooks, available in adult and pediatric versions, in English and French; a newsletter, BrainStorm; and a children’s storybook, “A Friend in Hope”. Program activities include monthly support group meetings, a national toll free support line, annual patient conferences, and an online Virtual Support Centre. Each year, the foundation funds Canadian research projects and is the sole funder of the Brain Tumour Tissue Bank.
