National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £35 million a year

Minute’s silence to remember all those lost to brain tumours

A minute’s silence took place at 11am today at the Brain Tumour Research Centres of Excellence at the University of Plymouth, Queen Mary University of London, Imperial College and also at the charity’s head office in Milton Keynes.

Researchers and team members paused to remember all those lost to brain tumours as Brain Tumour Awareness Month gets underway. The following verse was also read out:

We thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday, 
And days before that too. You are forever in our hearts.

Wreaths of spring flowers were placed at the Walls of Hope at our research centres as we took the opportunity to pause, reflect, and show our respect for those who have lost their lives to this devastating disease. We hope that this event will become a national observance each year.
