Campaigning for a cure
Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer
Campaigning to find a cure for brain tumours
Our work with Parliamentarians is key to raising awareness about brain tumours and we treat it as an opportunity to influence cancer policy at the highest levels as we campaign to increase national investment for research into this devastating disease.
For decades, research into brain tumours has been largely ignored by those who make decisions about health spending. We work hard to keep the issues surrounding brain tumours in the minds of politicians and health experts.
Our campaign priorities are summarised in our ‘Invest In A Cure’ manifesto:
- Increase funding – Shine a spotlight on research funding for brain tumours
- Incentivise treatment – Prioritise brain tumour patients
- Facilitate innovation – Ring-fence funds for brain tumour research
This will only be achieved with your help; your support gives us strength, your voice makes us louder and allows us to be heard. Together we will find a cure.
The next meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Brain Tumours will take place on Tuesday 1st May 2018 and will be collecting evidence from young people with a brain tumour diagnosis about what can be done to improve their patient experience.
