Last month, we had the first brainstrust Midlands Meet Up of 2018 at Pizza Express in Derby’s Irongate.

There was an amazing response, and 16 people joined for us for a relaxed evening meal.  We know the challenges you face when living with a brain tumour diagnosis, whether you’re a patient, relative or close friend. Feeling isolated is a significant challenge.

brainstrust Meet Ups are just one of the many ways that we can support you and give you the opportunity to meet other people going through similar experiences.

It was great to see some familiar faces, as well as new families who had found out about the Meet Up through Royal Derby Hospital.

Jodie Mytton, brainstrust Support Specialist for the Midlands, says “it was really good to know that the hospital was letting people know about our events, and the evening went really well. All the staff at Pizza Express in Derby were really accommodating and said they would be more than happy to welcome us there again.”
