Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer
Increase in childhood cancer survival rates masks the story of rising numbers of children lost to brain tumours
Brain tumours remain the biggest cancer killer children. Brain Tumour Research is determined to change that. We are calling on the Government and larger cancer charities to increase national investment for research into brain tumours to rise to £35 million per year. Only then can we usher in the same advances seen in leukaemia, revolutionising treatments for brain tumours, providing new hope for patients and their families.
- Brain tumour patients score lowest on patient experience survey
- Urgent investment for brain tumour research is still needed
