In Past Events

Thrive events

Thrive webinars and workshops are meticulously curated by brainstrust and hosted by leading experts to help you tackle the challenges that make life with a brain tumour so hard.

So that you can be more informed, more engaged, and cope better, you can now access brainstrust workshops online. Thrive events are more focussed than a Meet Up – if you are feeling lost or confused, need practical information and would like a deeper dive into specific aspects of life with a brain tumour, then Thrive events are for you.

Thrive, with good nutrition – cancer and essential nutrients – Wednesday July 8th, 12pm-12.30pm

During treatment for a brain tumour, you might need to change your diet to help build up your strength and withstand the effects of the cancer and its treatment. This may mean eating things that aren’t normally recommended when you are in good health.

For instance, you might need high-fat, high-calorie foods to keep up your weight or thick, cool foods like ice cream or milkshakes because sores in your mouth and throat are making it hard to eat anything.

Nutritionist Jane Roseland will share with you tips for managing changes in diet and will cover what you shouldn’t be eating when having chemotherapy.

This webinar will be hosted by Jane Roseland.

Jane is a super qualified nutritionist and some of you will have met her at our health and well-being events. The passion that drives Jane’s work is helping people living with a brain tumour to feel well and helping them to lead healthier, happy and more fulfilled lives.

Webinars with brainstrust

Signing up for a webinar is simple. We’ve put together some guidance here! If you have any questions please email

These webinars are a little different to those you may have attended previously! They are deliberately kept to small numbers, so that everybody can make the most of the experience by interacting with each other and asking questions (although there is no pressure to share, and if you would like to keep your camera or microphone turned off that is fine).  If you sign up but can’t attend, please do let us know so that we can offer the place to someone else.
