Brain Tumour Research Petition Report
We are calling on the Government to Level Up and stop the devastation.
More than 100,000 people signed our petition demanding action. It’s time for a cure.
We call on the Government to:
- Introduce a new levelling up brain tumour research fund of £105 million
- Increase the national investment into brain tumour research to £35 million a year
- Demonstrate joined-up thinking for investment across the brain tumour research pipeline
Research into brain tumours must not be left behind – the nation needs to Level Up and invest at least £35 million a year if we are to find a cure for brain tumours in the next 20 years.
Only by levelling up can we usher in the game-changing research that promises the hope so desperately needed for brain tumour patients and all those impacted by this devastating disease – the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under the age of 40.
Please share this among your friends and family offline and via your social networks.
Amongst the passionate campaigners who signed the petition are:
The family of Stephen Realf
“When my son was diagnosed in 2008, his oncologist said: ‘who knows what we will know about brain tumours in 10 years’ time?’ This gave him hope; research gave him hope; he hoped things would change, improve, and save him. My hope for other families lives on through research.”
We received 112,260 signatures on our #BrainTumourPetition calling for increased national investment into brain tumour research to £35 million a year.
The petition is now closed, but you can help us keep the momentum going.
The Prime Minister Boris Johnson has already confirmed that he is “looking forward” to receiving the report from Derek Thomas MP, Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Brain Tumours, once it is “safe to do so”.
When this happens we will report on what the PM says on our Latest News page
The Petition Report has been delivered to every MP. As well as receiving this powerful document, we’d like every MP to receive an email from you, their constituent.
