Call on Government to 'Invest in a Cure'
On Tuesday 17th March, we joined many patients and their families, carers, scientists and other charities at Westminster to jointly present the new Brain Tumour Research manifesto to MPs at Parliament.
The Invest In A Cure manifesto is an open invitation and call to action inviting the UK Government to work with Brain Tumour Research and its partner organisations to shine the spotlight on research funding, incentivise and prioritise treatment for brain tumour patients, and facilitate innovation by providing a dedicated fund for brain tumour research.
The manifesto launch took place at Speaker’s House within the House of Commons and was attended by over 100 of our supporters. It was hosted by charity patron and local MP Rt Hon John Bercow alongside actress and author Sheila Hancock, CBE. Both gave rousing speeches, setting the tone for what was a timely and poignant evening of raising awareness for this devastating disease. This was a landmark opportunity to allow our collective voices to be heard in the corridors of Parliament during Brain Tumour Awareness Month (and beyond).
The event was covered across the UK both in the national and regional news and it created a real buzz on social media.
