A little bit about what we do
Approximately 45 people each day in the UK face a brain tumour diagnosis. Brain Tumour Support offers vital services not just to patients but their loved ones and carers too. Support is available at any point from diagnosis, which can be terrifying and bewildering, to coping with the life-changing impact that a brain tumour can have and sadly also the devastating loss that so many families face.
Tragically brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other type of cancer. The impact for families is profound. Brain Tumour Support is here to help with practical and emotional support at any point.
Our vision is that no-one should feel alone when facing a brain tumour diagnosis. Through your fundraising you are helping to hold out that hand of support when it is really needed.
