Why remember us in your Will?

The Brain Tumour Charity has been at the forefront of the fight against brain tumours since 1996. And, by leaving us a gift in your Will, you’ll help us keep accelerating towards cures.

We know we still have a long way to go. In the UK, brain tumours remain the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40 and over 5,000 people still lose their lives to a brain tumour every year. But thanks to research, the tide is turning.

Right now, hope is growing – we know more about brain tumours and how to diagnose and target them than ever before. We’re investing in more brain tumour specific research and accelerating progress.

A gift in your Will could fund research that leads to a life-saving breakthrough, which means when a mum asks if there’s any hope for her child in years to come, the answer will be ‘yes’.

We’ve already achieved so much together

Over the past few years, you’ve enabled us to lead the way in areas such as:

  • testing more accurately for tumour type, so that patients can receive more targeted treatments with fewer nasty side effects
  • repurposing existing therapies, such as using a drug best known for treating malaria to make radiotherapy more effective for brain tumour patients
  • launching HeadSmart, a multi-award-winning awareness campaign which has already reduced average diagnosis times of brain tumours in children and teenagers from 13 weeks to 6.5 weeks.

And so much more… Together, we’ll create change today and transform the future for people with brain tumours.

With a gift in your Will, you can make hope grow even more…

More brainpower: You could help to fund a Future Leader grant for a brilliant young researcher so they can become a leading expert in research into brain tumours.

More understanding: You could help researchers find answers to urgent brain tumour questions, such as what encourages tumours to grow and reoccur.

More breakthroughs: You could green light more research into potential game-changing new treatments and techniques.

A gift in your Will could fill more labs with research into brain tumours that could give hope to thousands of people in years to come.

Research takes time to produce results and people remembering The Brain Tumour 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. Just think what a gift left today could achieve!
