Read about some people whose lives have been touched by brain tumours – we hope you feel as inspired by them as we do!
Dan was first diagnosed with a grade 2 brain tumour after a grand mal seizure in April 2006 when he was 30. He received a variety of treatments including a craniotomy in 2009 to de-bulk the tumour. At that time he found out that the tumour had been re-classified as a grade 3 or 4 and his doctors recommended he should start to receive regular chemotherapy and radiotherapy at Charing Cross Hospital. Dan was married to Lucy and was a fundraiser for and a trustee of BTRC.
Our brain tumour research programme is possibly one of the most comprehensive in the world. Its aim is to look at every possibility to improve the outlook for brain tumour patients by producing rapid “translational” research, ie research that translates into treatments as quickly as possible. We have examined every aspect of the patient pathway from diagnosis through treatment to survival and have identified areas that require improvement to achieve this.
Donations, fundraising and sponsorship are vital to our work.
We promise that unlike many charities today:
- none of the money raised will be spent on administration
- 100% of net donations will go to research projects
