Brain Tumour Charity (The)
At least 88,000 children and adults are currently estimated to be living with a brain tumour in the UK. And the impact can be devastating. Just 12% of adults survive for five years after diagnosis and brain tumours reduce life expectancy by an average of 27 years – the highest of any cancer.
Despite this, treatments haven’t changed in 40 years and research into brain tumours is still woefully underfunded. In fact, just 3% of the money spent each year on cancer research in the UK is spent on brain tumours.
More needs to be done now, if we’re going to find a cure. The Brain Tumour Charity invests in forward-thinking research, more specialist support services, and passionately lobbying for more urgent change.
They are committed to improving life for everyone affected and to defending the most incredible part of the human body.
Brain tumours strike fast. But with your support, we can be the generation that stops them – right in their tracks. Please donate generously to this worthy cause.
