BTRC Christmas Celebration raises £23K!
Read about some people whose lives have been touched by brain tumours – we hope you feel as inspired by them as we do!
Diagnosed with a brain tumour at the age of 23, Anna Swabey was initially given just months to live, but under the care of consultant neurosurgeon Kevin O’Neill, at Imperial College, London, Anna had surgery and went on to have a year’s chemotherapy and radiotherapy under oncologist Matt Williams. She shared her experiences from the time of her diagnosis almost up to her death through her blog “Inside My Head”.
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
