Statements by Members: Brain Cancer Awareness Day

On Wednesday, November 24th, I rose in the House of Commons to recognize this day as the first Brain Cancer Awareness Day in Canada, as well as highlight the hard work of those working with the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.

TRANSCRIPT:

Mr. Speaker, today is the first-ever Brain Cancer Awareness Day in Canada.

While we have made significant progress and advancements in various forms of cancer treatment, there is still much left to be done.

That is why our government is undertaking a series of measures to modernize our health care system so that we will be in a better position to provide greater access to new treatments for diseases like brain cancer.

With disease awareness comes hope and support for research. I would like to recognize the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, a national non-profit organization based in London, Ontario.

This week they launched “Hats for Hope”, a nationwide brain cancer awareness campaign calling on all Canadians to show support for increased brain cancer research.

I extend my thoughts and support to all Canadians impacted by brain cancer.

Together we can make a difference.
