Over the month of September on Croydon Radio, we had a number of inspirational interviews. As always we kept our eyes on the TWEETS for #BrainTumorThursday also and raising awareness of brain tumours. Listen again to the interviews below.
Aunty M Brain Tumours Charity of the Month was BTRS. Their vision is clear and simple – “we want to cure a devastating disease that affects so many people. Whist we are waiting for the cure, we will provide the best patient and family support network we can”.
BTRS set its objectives as follows:
- To raise funds to support specific and dedicated research projects into the treatment and cure of child and adult brain tumours, and to ensure that all research is written up for publication and communicated with other charities and research organisations.
- To provide grants or financial assistance to brain tumour patients and their carers.
- To provide equipment and apparatus to hospital wards, patients or research centres.

Aunty M Brain Tumours was set up to have an online support network.
I have tried to give people a place to find information. Not in the medical sense but in a way to help and motivate people.
There will be more places to visit as I find them… If you have any places to tell others about, just leave your comment below.
