Our amazing family of Fundraising Groups
Championing the fight against brain tumours and raising thousands for our cause, helping us build network of experts in sustainable research at dedicated Centres of Excellence and supporting us as we influence the Government and larger cancer charities to invest more nationally.
Brainstorm was set up by Katie Smith and her husband Luke in 2019, following Katie’s diagnosis with a life-limiting oligoastrocytoma. The couple, who live in Stourbridge with their young son Eli, decided to dedicate a year to fundraising and raising awareness of brain tumours, which kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer. Katie lives with the knowledge that she may not make it to her 40th birthday and, faced with such devastating news, wants to raise £90,000 for Brain Tumour Research.
