A brain tumour can do funny things

Did you know that a brain tumour can make your eyes look in different directions? Give you a banging headache? Make you vom for days? A brain tumour can do all of this and more.

But identifying a brain tumour early really 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.

What are the symptoms of a brain tumour?


Vomming for days


Banging headaches


Balance problems


Blurred or double vision


Behaviour change


Seizures or fits


Paused or delayed puberty


Weird eye movements

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.

You can help spread the word by finding them on Snapchat and giving them a try today!

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.
