Petition for ‘Fund more research into brain tumours’ has been reached 100,000 signatures – AMAZING! Thank you (the Government now have to respond)

We’ve done it!

We received 100,000 signatures on the “Petition for more research into brain tumours, the biggest cancer kill of under 40’s” (Parliament considers all petitions that get more than 100,000 signatures for a debate.)

Brain tumours kill more children and adults under 40 than any other cancer.

More funding for research is urgently needed – read on for some shocking statistics from the charity Brain Tumour Research.

• Unlike most cancers, brain cancer incidence is rising

• Less than 20% of those diagnosed with brain cancer survive beyond 5 years

• In 2014, brain tumours received 1.5% (£7.7 million) of the £498 million national spend on research into cancer.  At this rate, it could take 100 years to catch up with developments in other diseases

Thank you so much for signing – it means the world to all the people out there suffering from this hideous condition.

If you haven’t already signed please do, this petition runs until 3rd February 2016
