The Brain Tumour Charity - Social Media Volunteer



Details of the Charity:

The Brain Tumour Charity is the world's leading brain tumour charity and the largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours globally.

Our vision is for a world where brain tumours are defeated

Your brain is the most extraordinary part of your body. It's responsible for your ability to move and to communicate. It controls your emotions and stores your memories. It's the part of you that makes you who you are.

Yet, at least 88,000 children and adults are currently estimated to be living with a brain tumour in the UK. And the impact can be devastating. Just 12% of adults survive for five years after diagnosis, and brain tumours reduce life expectancy by an average of 27 years – the highest of any cancer.

Despite this, treatments haven't changed in 40 years, and research into brain tumours is still woefully underfunded. Just 3% of the money spent each year on cancer research in the UK is spent on brain tumours.

We know progress isn't happening fast enough. We need to do more if we're going to find a cure. And we need to do it now. That's why we're investing in more forward-thinking research, more specialist support services, and passionately lobbying for more urgent change.
