Nottingham Paediatric Information Day

Tuesday 30 May 2017 Information Days

The Brain Tumour Charity and the East Midlands Children and Young Person's Integrated Cancer Service are working together to support families affected by a brain tumour.

The Nottingham Paediatric Information Day will provide a wonderful opportunity for you to feel better informed, less isolated and more in control of the issues that you face every day as a parent of a child living with a brain tumour diagnosis.

At this free event you'll hear from expert speakers on topics such as life after treatment for a brain tumour, the emotional impact of a brain tumour and returning to education.
