Together We Are Stronger

Together we can rebuild

About the Together We Are Stronger Appeal

Since the launch of this long term appeal, our amazing supporters and fundraisers really have shown that #TogetherWeAreStronger.

 

The commitment and generosity of everyone who has raised funds and donated, alongside help from trusts and emergency funds, has enabled Brain Tumour Support to survive and we are now continuing the hard work to rebuild our full support service and ensure the future of support for all who need it.

Although currently still working with a reduced team, we are determined to support the many patients and families for whom the coronavirus crisis adds complications and stress on top of the devastating impact that a brain tumour can have. 

Our services are already over-subscribed, with a 51% increase in demand for support in 2019-20.  And due to delays in referrals caused by the pandemic and lockdown, we are seeing a further increase in demand as clinics, diagnoses and treatment recommence.  So we face many challenges both now and ahead of us to meet this growing need.


If you are able, please donate to help us come through the COVID-19 crisis to rebuild and be here for brain tumour patients and families in the future.

Jane's Story - a powerful short film about how support can change a life

When Jane was diagnosed with a brain tumour, she was worried about being able to look after her son and frightened about the future. But with our support and specialist counselling she rebuilt her life.

Please help us to be here for more people like Jane
