Today I was reading an article regarding funding for Brain Tumour and in this article it states that “It would take 100 years for brain cancer to catch up current developments in other cancers, health experts have warned” (Telegraph 01-10-2014) I do not know how much of this article is completely accurate but when I read this I could not believe that B.T funding was so far behind.
I have posted the full article link at the end of this blog entry.
Also Brain Tumour research in the United Kingdom only receive less than 1% of national cancer research spending. (Brain tumour research 2014)
I really think that it is time something is done about this as Brain Tumours have such a high amount of deaths, especially with children and individuals under the age of 40!
Brain tumour research need around 7 Million raised each year to make a difference!!
That’s right everyone we are having a coffe morning to raise money and awareness for Brain Tumour Research!
