National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £35 million a year
Sneak peek at new Believe Magazine
With the new edition of our Believe Magazine coming soon, we wanted to give you a flavour of what’s inside.
The cover of Believe features a stunning self-portrait taken by Edward Ruggiero, who is living with a grade 3 anaplastic astrocytoma. Edward shared his story in our Petition Report and worked with Brain Tumour Research to help raise awareness when the Report was launched in April. He took this photo after a life-threatening infection resulted in surgery to remove part of his skull.
The Summer 2021 issues also celebrates the fantastic fundraising efforts of supporters across the UK, including a grandad’s year-long swimming challenge, a teen’s relentless running and, of course, a hattastic roundup from this year’s Wear A Hat Day. We also share exciting research updates from our Centres of Excellence at Plymouth and Queen Mary University of London, and a campaigning roundup including some major milestones.
There are updates from our Member Charities and we introduce you to our newest Fundraising Group, Perry’s Legacy. Plus, we talk to one supporter about why she decided to share her husband’s story and what it meant to her.
