We’re turning the world grey to support people with brain tumours.

Wear Grey for a Day 2018

Over 15,000 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumour this year. That’s why every year on the 1st October we all Wear Grey to raise awareness of the invisible illness that is brain cancer. And this year is no different.

Since the launch of Wear Grey in 2011, together we have raised over £100,000 to support the brain tumour community. This year, thousands of people will come together to turn the world grey and show their support for people battling brain tumours, and to raise awareness of the challenges that life with a brain tumour brings.
