How we can help

There are over 120 types of brain tumour – glioblastoma (GBM4), meningioma, astrocytoma, and glioma are just a few of the names. In some cases brain surgery is necessary; in others it may just be question of watch and wait. But you need to know what the best course of action is. Here you'll find a one stop shop for brain tumour support.
Symptoms & diagnosis
Doctors refer to symptoms and signs. Symptoms are abnormal changes you have felt; signs are what other people have noticed about you.
Treatment information
The more you know, the more you will be empowered to take control of your brain tumour treatment and decide what the right path is for you.
Resources
We need the right resources and support with us on our brain tumour journey; a little bit of planning goes a long way.
Little Brainstrust
The Smiley Riley Fund and brainstrust are working together to help families with children who are battling a brain tumour.

Carers

caregivers
This area has been developed specifically for carers of people with brain cancer; much of the information has been contributed by people who found themselves in this position.

Survivorship

survivorship
People do survive cancer. All the time. And people can survive brain cancer. But not all the time. brainstrust is working hard to change this.
