National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £30-35 million a year

It’s official: Our supporter Sheila Hancock is an “Amazing Woman”

We are proud to announce that actor and author Sheila Hancock has been recognised in Woman & Home magazine’s Amazing Women Awards 2020 for her support of Brain Tumour Research.

In this month’s issue of magazine, Sheila says: “I became involved with the charity 20 years ago, after my grandson Jack, then four years old, was diagnosed with a brain tumour and raising awareness was a way to stop the feelings of frustration. I’ve seen this group of individuals work so hard to raise funds for research and equipment, growing more and more confident and determined. I’m delighted and privileged to be a tiny part of it.”

Jack is living his life scan-free but he remains as supportive of us as his grandmother and we will always be grateful for their support of the charity over the past decade. This recognition is richly deserved.
