We feel this embodies the people and patients involved in brainstrust as we all have admiration for anyone going through the ordeal of a brain tumour and wish them all the most amazing amount of luck for their journey."

Books and literature

'Living with a Brain Tumour: Dr. Peter Black's Guide to Taking Control of Your Treatment'

Living With a Brain Tumour - Dr Peter Black's Guide to taking control of your treatment
Written by our Patron and the neurosurgeon that operated on Meg, this book must surely be the definitive guide. It is brilliantly conceived as Peter offers his expertise about a variety of topics that affect brain tumour patients and their loved ones in an easy to understand format. It is divided into five parts:

  • An introduction to brain tumors
  • Types of brain tumors
  • Living with a brain tumor
  • Treatment options
  • Recovery
The narrative style is key though. Peter's warmth and compassion underpin all that he writes, and yet the book still succeeds at working on so many levels, whether you are a brain tumour patient, a medical professional, or a relative.

A must read for all who have an interest in this field. Everything you have ever wanted to know is in here. It really is the most comprehensive guide we have come across and explains everything so clearly.
