Our challenge

A brain tumour diagnosis brings with it the double impact of a cancer diagnosis and a progressively debilitating neurological disease.

“I feel like I’m in a fight with my hands tied behind my back.”
Caregiver, Liverpool

Brain tumour treatment is complex and nearly always harmful, and diagnosis brings with it enormous impact on well-being and mental health. Fear, isolation, disempowerment and loss of control abound.

This is where we help. We are here for you, to help you live life with a brain tumour.

We’re here to help you live better with a brain tumour, so you can get back to being you.

Let us show you how it feels to thrive.

What we do

We believe in a world where people with a brain tumour and their loved ones are involved, resourced, confident and connected. They are living the life they want, to the best of their potential, because they are people first, and patients and carers second.

We provide personalised support and build resources that help people with a brain tumour and their loved ones live the life they want after diagnosis. We work with people in the clinical setting to secure the best possible care for people with a brain tumour and we campaign to solve real issues, because we understand what challenges people with a brain tumour face.

Our support is available to everybody affected by any type of brain tumour. Find out more about the ways we can help you thrive when living with and beyond a brain tumour below.
