ABOUT BRAIN TUMOUR RESEARCH CAMPAIGN (BTRC)

What?

We fundraise through events and donations in order to raise awareness of the need for a significant increase in brain tumour research funding. We also fund projects involving research scientists and clinicians to improve brain tumour treatments and work towards finding a cure.

Why?

Brain tumour research is woefully underfunded. We work to raise awareness of the critical need for increased funding while supporting desperately needed ‘bench-to-bedside’ research projects.

We are constantly amazed and inspired by the fundraising activities of our supporters, who often raise significant amounts for our campaign in memory of lost loved ones. No-one is more sadly missed by many of us than Dan Wiggins, who was a trustee of our campaign for several years, and galvanised friends and family during his lifetime, and now they continue after his untimely death in 2015 - bringing the total amount of donations to over £140,000!

And still they go on.... most recently his lovely Mum Rosalind, who will embark upon a cycle ride from Paris to London on May 1st! Please support her by donating on her Justgiving page: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/rosalind-wiggins

RESEARCH

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.
