Being diagnosed with a brain tumour is a life-altering experience and one that can take a while to adjust to. Many patients have written blogs to share their experiences of their brain tumour journey, helping to raise the awareness of brain tumours whilst supporting the wider online community.

It can often be helpful to read of other people's experiences to help better prepare yourself with how to cope with a brain tumour diagnosis, as well as future treatments and side effects.

Below are a list of blogs that are followed by many of the people that we support. If you know of any other helpful blogs or write one yourself that you would like to add to the list, please e-mail us and we would be happy to consider it.
