Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of UK children, yet receives only 1% of funds raised through cancer charities.
Every year around 450 children in the UK are diagnosed with a brain tumour. Survival rates for childhood brain tumours in the UK are among the lowest in Europe.
On average, children in the UK wait up to three times longer for a brain tumour diagnosis than those in other developed countries. This can make long-term survivors up to ten times more likely to suffer disability. We need to improve our understanding of childhood brain tumours.
The Children’s Brain Tumour Foundation was founded in March 2012 to raise awareness and fund research into childhood brain tumours. The charity has been set up by Parents, Doctors and Researchers in the hope to help make a difference.
Maybe you can help too!
Registered Charity Number 1148580 CHILDREN’S BRAIN TUMOUR FOUNDATION
We are a proud member of The Brain Tumour Research Group.
RAISING AWARENESS TOGETHER… yet maintaining our own identities, providing support, information and funding for research. To date eighteen UK brain tumour charities have joined forces under the umbrella of the Brain Tumour Research group, giving the group nationwide coverage and the capacity to lobby a far greater number of local MPs. An additional benefit of the coalition of charities is the ease in which the message (that a cure for brain tumours must be found and soon) can be passed at a local level.
