Brain Tumour Awareness Month

Help us make a difference

Brain Tumour Awareness Month was launched in 2004 by a group of charities which went on to becoming founding members of Brain Tumour Research.

This March, we are leading the way with a programme of activities to demand increased national investment to ensure a cure is found for this devastating disease.

From fundraising to campaigning, raising awareness to taking a quiet moment to reflect, there are lots of ways that you can support Brain Tumour Research during Brain Tumour Awareness Month.

Below are some ideas for how you can make a difference. Please get involved and do at least one of these to help us get closer to a cure for this devastating disease.
