Astro Brain Tumour Fund
Who we are
Astro Brain Tumour Fund raises funds to support LGG research at the most innovative neuro-oncology research centres in the UK.
We also run online support groups. These groups include over 300 patients, carers, friends and family members from around the globe, who can expand upon all the information available from our website.
Low-grade (slow growing) brain tumours affect people of all ages, so our work benefits everyone from babies, children and teenagers through to adults just beginning their own families, and those nearing retirement age.
Low-grade brain tumours can lie undetected for many years before symptoms suddently appear and turn the victims lives upside down.
Despite their slow-growing nature, some low-grade brain tumours can cause progressive problems such as memory loss, extreme tiredness and sight problems.
