National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £35 million a year
Help us Stop the Devastation of brain tumours
Brain tumour patients and those who have lost a loved one to the disease are starring in our hard-hitting campaign Stop the Devastation which launches today.
They are sharing their stories to raise awareness of brain tumours, expose the history of underfunding for research into the disease, and encouraging people to donate to help find a cure.
You can watch a short film about the campaign and read their stories on our Stop the Devastation webpage here.
The patients, families and friends are helping to highlight the fact that brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer. Despite this, historically, just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease. And, tragically, 88% of those diagnosed die within five years.
The campaign lays bare the powerful and painful truth about brain tumours – they are indiscriminate, they can affect anyone at any age, there is no cure and for many, sadly, there is little or no hope.
You can help us reach more people by taking part in our #NoMore social media campaign.
