Gifts in Kind

More than 60,000 people in the UK are living with a devastating brain tumour diagnosis. 40% of all cancers spread to the brain. It is the most the most common form of cancer in people under 40. But these facts don’t help you when you hear the words “you have a brain tumour”.

A brain tumour diagnosis brings with it the double impact of a cancer diagnosis and a progressively debilitating neurological disease. The treatment is complex and harmful; and diagnosis brings with it fear, isolation, disempowerment and a loss of control. This is where we help, and we need your support.

One of our passion projects is our brain box, sent to patients, carers and family members. Each brain box is tailored to the recipient, made up of specific resources providing essential information to help people feel less alone and less afraid in the face of a brain tumour diagnosis. With wellbeing at the heart of what we do, we also add in a few treats – a little something to brighten up their day!

With each brain box costing £40, we are extremely grateful to receive gifts in kind. Something as simple as a warm cup and tea with biscuits, or a small toy to include in a children’s brain box, truly makes the world of difference.
