SUPPORT for all

We are here to help

Look here for listings which will apply equally to patients and carers, with many services also being available to other family members including children, grandparents and those not directly involved in day to day care but still very much affected by the low-grade brain tumour diagnosis.

Please join the Low Grade Support Group Facebook page.  This is a closed group for low-grade patients and their families.  Apply to join the group and you will be contacted by the administrator, Linda.  Please make sure your Facebook/Messenger settings are such that you can receive a message from her.

Welcome to Astro Brain Tumour Fund

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 Facebook support group includes over 300 people from all over the world, and is renowned for its 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 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.
