OUR PROJECT

The Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada is a non-profit organization that reaches out to Canadians affected by brain tumours in order to provide means of support, education, information, and research. They seek to improve the quality of life of their members as well as finding a cure. This foundation is based strongly on the values of hope, support, caring, integrity, accountability, and collaboration. 

For our community nursing project, as part of our last semester of study, we have worked closely with the Brain Tumour Foundation and some of its clients to identify areas where resources were needed. We have developed an online resource for young adults who have been diagnosed with a brain tumour in order to support them through important aspects of their lives which include relationships, intimacy, fertility, education and more.

 

WHAT WE HOPE TO ACHIEVE

Our goal is to assist young adults with brain tumours as they seek resources that will allow them to improve their quality of life.
