Brain Tumour Awareness Week and the Brain Tumour National Conference!

Join the Movement to End Brain Tumours at the Brain Tumour National Conference!

October 22-29, 2016
The Brain Tumour National Conference is deliberately timed to kick-start a week of Brain Tumour Awareness. You can raise awareness of brain tumours in many ways; find out more on our website.
One of the ways that you can raise awareness is by wearing grey, the colour of grey brain matter and the brain tumour awareness ribbon. That's why we are asking everyone who attends the Conference, either in person or at live streaming events, to wear grey.

Our staff did this recently and you may meet several of the faces below at the conference or live streaming events.
We are looking forward to meeting all of you who are registered to Join the Movement to End Brain Tumours at the inaugural Brain Tumour National Conference
Saturday October 22, 2016, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel and Conference Centre, 801 Dixon Road, Toronto, ON
If you have already registered for this event, please make sure to complete your registration by following the two step process as outlined in the confirmation email. If you have not yet registered, please do so!

We look forward to seeing you on October 22, 2016 and hope you will share this email with your friends, neighbours and colleagues.
If you, your family or your friends are unable to join the conference in-person, you will still be able to meet some of our staff pictured above, as we will be live streaming the plenary sessions to your home or to a local satellite event near you. Find out more.
