Last week Rother Valley MP Kevin Barron attended an event marking brain tumour awareness month, and revealing the findings of a new report on the funding available for brain tumour research.

Mr Barron and other guests all wore hats to promote Wear A Hat Day on 28th March, the charity’s annual national awareness raising campaign.

A recent report found brain tumours have one of the lowest survival rates of all cancers - and one of the lowest levels of funding.

Mr Barron said: “I was very moved by the findings of the research and appreciate how hard it must be for patients and the family and friends of those diagnosed with a brain tumour.”

“It is vital we invest in research into all cancers and that the allocation of funding is fair for all.”
