OUR HEROES... who recognise there is no time to lose, and are providing skills and financial assistance
Brain Tumour Research is eternally grateful to our heroes who, in a whole variety of different ways, are helping the charity in their mission to increase awareness of the plight of brain tumour patients and raise desperately needed funds for research into the prevention and treatment of brain tumours, as well as ultimately finding a cure.
If you think you could be a hero (or you know of someone else), then please get in touch NOW. Don’t leave it until tomorrow! For many brain tumour patients there is no tomorrow…
