Since losing her husband to a brain tumour, Carrie Holbrook has been campaigning to raise awareness of brain tumours and improve outcomes for people with a brain tumour.
She is delighted that brainstrust and Brain Tumour Research are working together to present the UK’s first joint Brain Tumour Symposium, which aims to provide an educational, collaborative and transparent focus on the biggest issues facing the UK brain tumour community today and the specific advances that are being made.
Carrie said: “The UK Brain Tumour Symposium is a great opportunity to bring leading experts from brain tumour support and brain tumour research together. It will give people affected by brain tumours the chance to find out more about the progress and advances that are being made in many areas including brain tumour research, quality of life and living well.
“Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer amongst the under 40s, so it’s important to raise awareness, and this event is a great way to do that.”
