Brain tumours kill more children & adults under 40 than any other cancer!

More research is urgently needed… as just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease.

Over 16,000 people are diagnosed with a brain tumour in the UK every year & there desperately needs to be more funding in place in order to accelerate the research. Unlike many other cancers, general cancer research does not always translate into viable brain tumour research. It is only through giving to charities funding laboratory-based research that all types of brain tumour – childhood & adult, low grade & high grade- will be cured.

The Brain tumour research charity support the UK’s largest network of laboratory-based research scientists at their centres of excellence. Their researchers are working hard to –

-Repurpose Drugs

-Impede tumour growth

– Discover new drugs

-Halt tumours spreading

-Stop tumours coming back

They need £1 MILLION A YEAR to recruit & keep their researchers working at each one of the centres ; that’s £2,740 per day, per centre.

They are striving to fund a network of seven research centers in the UK, whilst challenging the government & larger cancer charities to invest more in brain tumour research.

Their vision is to find a cure for brain tumours. To build a network of experts in sustainable brain tumour research.
