Defeating brain tumours together

On World Emoji Day we’re sharing important information about brain tumours and how, together, we’re defeating this devastating disease. Because we understand that when you, or someone you love, is diagnosed with a brain tumour – a cure really can’t wait.

Research

Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40 – yet receive less than 3% of the funding.

As the largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours globally we’re committed to saving and improving lives, we’re moving further, faster to help every single person affected by this brutal disease.

Did you know that we have recently committed a further £4.8million to research?
