Bruce Power is teaming up with the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada to boost awareness, and support those on a journey with a brain tumour.
 
The company has pledged $300,000 between 2018 and 2020 for the foundation.

Vice President of Corporate Affairs and Environment, James Scongack says through this partnership the two organizations can advocate for better treatments and equal access to medical technologies like "Gamma Knife."

Scongack says as a supplier of High Specific Activity cobalt,  Bruce Power is helping to transform care for brain tumour patients.
 
Susan Marshall, Chief Executive Officer, Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, said brain tumours are more common than people think and are the No. 1 cancer death in children.

At least 27 Canadians are diagnosed with a brain tumour every day.

There is no cure and they are often deadly.
 
As part of the $100,000 in annual funding, Bruce Power and Brain Tumour Foundation will also provide financial assistance to a young brain tumour survivor as they pursue post-secondary academic and vocational education.
