ASTRO BRAIN TUMOUR FUND IS THE ONLY UK CHARITY TO FOCUS PURELY ON LOW-GRADE GLIOMAS
We are working to find a cure for low-grade astrocytoma, oligodendroglioma, oligoastrocytoma and ependymoma brain tumours by raising money to support low-grade glioma research projects at the most innovative neuro-oncology research centres in the UK.
We also offer information, inspiration and support to help patients, carers, friends and relatives through the challenges of living with a slow growing brain tumour. Our online support groups include over 300 people from all over the world, and are renowned for their welcoming, encouraging and well informed members who can expand upon all the information contained in this website.
Staffed entirely by volunteers, Astro Brain Tumour Fund will ensure that every penny that you donate goes to where it is needed most. We have no overheads, no salaries and no expense accounts to pay. With all team members having personal experience of this challenging tumour type, finding a cure is at the centre of everything that we do.
We hope that you draw strength from the knowledge that there are thousands of people around the world who are working together to offer real hope for all of us whose lives are touched by low-grade gliomas. This website aims to bring together key information related to the low-grade glioma community in the UK, whilst information related to the global community can be gained through our online support groups.
