The Quebec Cancer Foundation (QCF) and the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada (BTCF) are partnering to optimize support for people affected by a brain tumour.

Canada has one of the highest levels of brain cancer in the world, and no new discoveries have been made in a decade. Faced with this reality, the QCF and the BTFC, true pillars in the field of oncology, have entered into a strategic partnership that will permit them to realize their common goal of improving the well-being of Quebecers with cancer and their loved ones.
 
“Every day in Canada, twenty-seven people are diagnosed with a brain tumour. This partnership with the Quebec Cancer Foundation will allow us to reach even more patients, survivors and caregivers affected by a brain tumor to provide them with support, resources and information.” - Susan Marshall, General Director of the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada
 
Thanks to this association, the BTFC will now redirect its patients to the Quebec Cancer Foundation's Info-cancer Hotline. From now on, with just one phone call, its patients in Quebec, and occasionally, in other Canadian provinces, will be able to consult oncology professionals easily and free of charge.
 

Info-cancer Services : Help is just a phone call away 

The Quebec Cancer Foundation offers the most extensive expertise in supporting people with cancer through its Info-cancer Hotline, the only telephone help service in Quebec on which experienced oncology nurses, nutritionists and psychologists answer patients' questions and concerns, as well as direct them to  a range of programs and services to support them through their ordeal.
 
“We want to raise awareness about this devastating disease and let our community know that we are there to help. Through this partnership, the Quebec Cancer Foundation's services will now be extended to people with brain tumours. We want everyone in need to know about our services and to be able to benefit from them.” - Marco Décelles, General Director of the QCF.
