It can be very lonely battling a brain tumour. We know. This isolation is a big issue and we are battling to solve it for you.
We do this through creating communities for hundreds of brain tumour patients and carers every year, and one day, with your help we hope to have a friendly, useful community that’s fit to support the 55,000+ people battling a brain tumour in the UK.
A community fit to help 55,000+ people
Indeed, our online communities are growing everyday:
Over 400 people are now helping each other in our tightly moderated facebook community: www.facebook.com/groups/braintumoursupportbrainstrust/
Twitter is seeing some great discussions unfolding – follow us over on @brainstrust
And offline? Our meet ups are more popular than ever, with thousands of people benefitting from these events over the years. And we are constantly introducing patients and carers to each other via our 24/7 helpline (you can call us anytime on 01983 292405, or email firstname.lastname@example.org)
New stories live today
Now, a cornerstone of knowing you are not alone in the battle against brain cancer is to understand that others are having the same experiences.
You can achieve this simply by reading other peoples’ stories, and you can do this here. We have updated these brain tumour patient stories recently, so put the kettle on, and take some time to read and know that you are not alone in this battle.
