Supporting Brain Tumour Research

BTR logo JPGJust a quick post to announce Escape the City’s partnership with Brain Tumour Research – see here

Brain Tumour Research represents the united campaign voice of the Brain Tumour Research group of charities.  Established in 2008, the charity was launched specifically to raise substantial funds for brain tumour research.

Their Mission

  • To raise at least £7 million per annum
  • To accelerate progress significantly in brain tumour research in the UK in order to make a clinical difference
  • To improve the outcomes for brain tumour patients

Why this charity?

research yellow bubbleDom and I are especially keen to support Brain Tumour Research because my brother Harry was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2007.  He thankfully beat it.

It was humbling to watch him deal with it with such bravery and equanimity.

The experience showed me (and our family) that life is too short and precarious not to spend it doing things that matter.

This thought has informed a lot of the philosophy behind Escape the City and is why we would like to support Brain Tumour Research as our partner charity.
