HeadSmart: be brain tumour aware

Brain tumours are the biggest childhood cancer killer. We need to act now to reduce disabilities and save the lives of children with brain tumours.
The Brain Tumour Charity is seeking support for our campaign, HeadSmart, to reduce the time of diagnosis from an unacceptable average of 3 months to less than 5 weeks. Earlier diagnosis will bring the UK up to the same standards for childhood brain cancer as other European countries and the USA - improving quality of life and saving lives.

Since HeadSmart launched in 2011, diagnosis times have decreased from averaging over 12 weeks to 6.9. This is real progress but we aren't complacent and will continue striving to reach our goal; reducing disabilities and saving the lives of children with brain tumours

The HeadSmart campaign is a partnership between The Brain Tumour Charity, the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre at University of Nottingham and The Health Foundation.

The funds received from this page will be received by The Brain Tumour Charity and used to fund the HeadSmart project and future work on earlier diagnosis of brain tumours.
