    Wear Grey for a Day 2015 Update

    Well, Wear Grey 2015 was a roaring success. 

    Throughout the day we saw the world turn grey for brain tumours.

    Grey was worn in homes, in schools and in workplaces. People got involved in the UK and overseas. And stories and reasons for wearing grey were shared and those no longer with us were remembered. It really was incredible.  

    Thanks so much to all of you who put on your grey and made a stand for brain tumours.

    Together, we made the world notice.

    All that's now left to say is bring on Wear Grey 2016


    Wear Grey for a Day is an effective way of building our community, and a simple opportunity to raise funds so that those who face the challenges of a brain tumour everyday can get the support that they need.

    We Wear Grey each year so that we can continue supporting people like Shaun, who actually kicked off Wear Grey in the UK a few years ago.

    In 2007 I was diagnosed with a brain tumour, with an original prognosis of about 5 or 6 years. I met brainstrust not that long after. I don't have a problem with having a brain tumour. What I do have a problem with is all the side effects that come with it. I started wear grey in the UK to raise awareness about these effects, and since then, with brainstrust now involved, it has gone from strength to strength. But the aim remains the same- to raise more awareness of brain tumours, the number of people affected and how life changing they are both for the patient and their carers
