Situation

Getting a brain tumour diagnosis can make you feel like your world has stopped. Sadly, 91% of people say that their tumour has affected their emotional and mental health.The difference between a brain tumour and a tumour in other parts of the body is the effect it can have on the mind, interaction with other people and physical ability. 84% of children and young people say their brain tumour had made them feel lonely. Brain tumours are a cancer of unmet need, which has been ignored for too long.

Solution

We’re here to help everyone affected by a brain tumour get the right support sooner. With a range of specialised services including our Information and Support Line, Patient Guide, Benefits Clinic, Live Chat, Online Information Days, Teenage and Young Adult Service and online communities, we have a service tailored to meet the needs of everyone. We believe everyone should have quick and easy access to the right information and support for them, at no cost.
