“We are very excited to collaborate with Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada to provide our clinicians, patients, and their families with resources to provide support to individuals with brain tumours in Canada” said Alice Haidau, Medical Content Manager, IMD, citing the need for inclusive, evidence-based health information, particularly given the shift toward digital tools incited by the pandemic, and internet use which often leads to misinformation.

About Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada
At Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, we help anyone affected by a brain tumour diagnosis. Our message is simple “you are not alone”; our team of dedicated staff, volunteers, and health care professionals, are here and working together with one hope — to find a cure and end brain tumors.
Over the years, we’ve grown from a local operation to a national organization, raising millions for research, education, and support for the tens of thousands of Canadians who are diagnosed every year. Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada is funded entirely through generous donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations, and by funds raised through special events.
Brain tumours are unpredictable, complex, and remain incurable. Their effects are physical, emotional, financial, and can last a lifetime. That’s why we work so hard to give hope to the estimated 55,000 Canadians currently living with a brain tumour.
Hope through research.
Hope through education and support.
Hope for a cure.
