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.
The Brain Tumour Charity is the world’s leading brain tumour charity and the largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours globally. But we don't receive any government funding and rely 100% on donations, including gifts in Wills.
It's not just the big gifts that make a difference, small legacies all add up, all making a difference to the lives of those affected:
- £100 could provide 75 families with HeadSmart information making them aware of childhood brain tumours and what to do if they spot the symptoms
- £250 could cover the cost of giving 10 children and their families immediate support and information after diagnosis
- £1,000 could pay for 15 tests to understand the genetic changes associated with development of a brain tumour
