Did you know that a brain tumour can make you act a bit weird? Make your eyes look in different directions? Get in the way of puberty?

A brain tumour can do all of this and more.

Get to know the symptoms below and check out our Snapchat filters to help you spot the signs in your mates and yourself.

What are the symptoms of a brain tumour?

Banging headaches

Did you know that ten children and teenagers are diagnosed with a brain tumour every week in the UK?

That’s why we challenged some of the country’s top illustrators to help spread awareness of brain tumour symptoms by creating Snapchat filters.

Help a mate in two steps

  1. Take a picture using our new filters. 
  2. Send it to a mate and let them know the importance of recognising brain tumour symptoms.

Why did you get involved?

We asked the artists who created our filters and icons why they wanted to get involved with our campaign to spread awareness of brain tumour signs and symptoms.

Identifying a brain tumour early massively reduces the chance of someone developing long term disabilities and can ultimately save their life! That’s why knowing how to spot the symptoms of a brain tumour is so important.

Join HeadSmart today and help raise awareness about the importance of detecting brain tumours early. 

There are lots of ways to get involved, from holding fundraising events to making sure information about HeadSmart is available at your school.
