By leaving a gift of any size to The Brain Tumour Charity in your Will, you will help us defeat brain tumours in the future. We do not receive any government funding and rely 100% on donations including gifts in Wills.
It's the little things in life that mean the most and you can help us make a real difference for generations to come.
Be part of a future with a cure
£1,000 could pay for 15 tests to understand the genetic changes associated with development of a brain tumour.
£7,500 could fund one of our world-class research projects for a month at a leading UK institution.
£50,000 could fund specialist equipment to enable our researchers to continue their cutting-edge research.
£80,000 could fund an entire early-phase clinical trial to test new treatments.
Help us to always be there
£250 could cover the cost of giving 10 children and their families immediate support and information after diagnosis.
£3,000 could fund an information day for 50 people with brain tumours and their families - providing them with the opportunity to hear talks from leading experts in areas such as neurosurgery, epilepsy, living with a brain tumour and clinical trials.
£10,000 could fund two family days, allowing 60 children with brain tumours and their families to enjoy a fun and supportive day out.
Help us save more lives through earlier diagnosis
£100 could provide 75 families with HeadSmart information making them aware of childhood brain tumours and what to do if they spot the symptoms.
£500 could pay for all pupils in a secondary school, their parents, and teachers to receive a HeadSmart symptoms card, ensuring early diagnosis.
£5,000 could enable us to give every child in a county the size of Devon a HeadSmart symptoms card through their school.
Less than 2% of all funding into cancer research in the UK is spent on brain tumours. This is not enough to see the improvements that are so desperately needed. We are determined to find better and safer treatments and will only fund the very best research being done. Find out what we're doing today to find a cure for the future.
We know that earlier diagnosis in children saves lives and limits long-term disability. Our award-winning HeadSmart campaign for the earlier diagnosis of children has already reduced diagnosis times from over three months to 6.7 weeks.
We are also working on a campaign for the earlier diagnosis of adults. This is the first project of its type in the world. By leaving a gift in your Will, you can help others in the future to be brain tumour aware and to act more quickly to get all the help they need early on.
“Sustainable funding is vital to charities such as The Brain Tumour Charity who are working on a long-term basis to change the landscape of brain tumour diagnosis and treatment. The research that my team are working on is completely reliant on stable, dependable funding so that we can plan for the future and carry out vital research that will have a lasting impact.
"Research takes time to produce results and knowing that people have remembered The Charity in their Will safeguards the future of research into this disease. 20 years ago someone left a gift in their Will and today it's being used to explore DNA mutations at The University of Nottingham. That wouldn't have sounded possible all those years ago, so just think what your gift for tomorrow could achieve!"
Dr Ruman Rahman, Researcher, The University of Nottingham
