Our vision is for a world where brain tumours are defeated
Your brain is the most extraordinary part of your body. It's responsible for your ability to move and to communicate. It controls your emotions and stores your memories. It's the part of you that makes you who you are.
Yet 102,000 people are living with a brain tumour in the UK and less than 3% of national cancer research funding is spent on the disease. Advances in treatments and quality-of-life care need to be made, and they need to be made quickly.
We know we need to move faster, and that’s why we’re not pressing pause. During the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve committed a further £4.8 million to critical research and are the only brain tumour charity to announce new research funding since lockdown, because now is not the time to stop.
By joining together, we know we can reach our goals sooner!
