APPGBT March 2020 - Invite Your MP
National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £30-35 million a year
Please ask your MP to attend the next meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Brain Tumours (APPGBT)
The next meeting will take place on Wednesday 25th March, during Brain Tumour Awareness Month.
The meeting will hear the latest about the status of funding for research into brain tumours, following the 2018 announcement of £65 million of funding from government and larger cancer charities.
It's also an opportunity to bring together MPs and their constituents, as well as researchers and clinicians, to discuss and raise awareness of the issues affecting brain tumour patients and their families.
