Every donation, no matter the size, funds research that could give families affected by a brain tumour the greatest gift of all – more time together.
For families affected by a brain tumour, having more time to make cherished memories with their loved ones is the greatest gift they could ever receive.
Sadly, this isn’t the kind of present that arrives neatly wrapped under a Christmas tree. Only 12% of patients with a brain tumour will survive for five years or more, and for some of the most aggressive tumour types, the average survival time is just 12 months or less.
The only way to give families the time together they deserve is by investing in bold new research and accelerating our search for a cure. But with only 3% of cancer research funding in the UK being spent on brain tumours, we rely on generous donations from our supporters.
Your donation this Christmas will help fund discoveries that move us further, faster towards a future where families affected by a brain tumour have more time to make cherished memories together!
This year our support team have taken 27% more support calls
Every day 33 people are diagnosed with a brain tumour
Over 90% of our funding comes from donations and legacies

Every donation this Christmas, no matter how large or small, will help support pioneering new research into kinder and more-effective treatments.
