Improving Brain Tumour Care surveys share your experiences and help create change

Why remember us in your Will?

The Brain Tumour Charity has been at the forefront of the fight against brain tumours since 1996.

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.

Past breakthroughs in the lab mean that previously terminal brain tumours are treatable today. And while it isn’t happening fast enough, survival rates are improving too. 

Through a gift in your Will, you could help to accelerate this progress and ensure that breakthroughs come faster for everyone affected by brain tumours. If that’s something you’d be proud to put your name to, please find out more today.

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… And we will not stop until brain tumours are defeated and no longer steal and ruin lives.

Every gift brings new momentum to the cause

Right now, thanks to medical advances, we know more about brain tumours and how to diagnose and target them than ever before.

The potential is there for researchers to develop more precise and kinder treatments, to save more lives and to improve quality of life for thousands of people. You can help us seize it, by remembering us in your Will.

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!

To date, you’ve enabled us to commit over £50 million to research into brain tumours. The more funds we have, the more we can do – and every gift in every Will counts.
