Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer... yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research is allocated to this devastating disease.
This is unacceptable!
We are striving to fund a network of seven dedicated research centres whilst challenging the government and larger cancer charities to invest more in brain tumour research.
Help us fund the fight. Together we will find a cure.
A charity in its own right Brain Tumour Research is also an umbrella charity and represents the united campaign voice of the Brain Tumour Research group of charities, working in collaboration with Member Charities around the UK.
Together with this network and supported by the fundraising achievements of our Umbrella Groups and fundraisers across the UK, some £4 million was raised in 2014 to fund both brain tumour research and to provide support for patients and families.
Like Brain Tumour Research, some of our members focus solely on fundraising for research. Our members all recognise that funding research is of vital importance so that we can advance treatments and ultimately one day, find a cure. Whilst we fundraise for vital research, some of our member charities are busily supporting patients and their families where and when they need it.
