London, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/13/2015 -- The thought of being diagnosed with a brain tumour is something that strikes fear into many of us and statistics show that one in six people across the UK is suffering from some kind of neurological disorder.
Whether the tumour is cancerous or benign, it can leave lasting damage and ongoing health issues such as difficulty in talking, mobility and more. A brain tumour can happen to anyone so neurological research is crucial to understanding and treating this condition.
Raising funds for the brain tumour charity helps pay for research and vital life saving treatment. This means that if you have ever considered donating to a brain tumour charity, the odds are that you, or someone you know, may one day benefit from the vital research such charity helps to fund.
Brain tumours and other neurological disorders are far more common than you may realise. It was recently in the news that the comedian and Bake Off presenter Sue Perkins has suffered from a brain tumour for the past eight years.
A brain tumour does not necessarily mean cancer. A benign tumour is essentially a clump of ordinary cells that start growing in the brain and multiplying (uncontrollably) and, in many cases, can be treated successfully. However research is vital.
Scientists still do not know why the brain's cells start behaving in this way and the monies raised by a brain tumour charity, such as The National Brain Appeal, go towards identifying the causes and triggers for the condition as well as searching for the most effective methods of treatment.
About The National Brain Appeal
The National Brain Appeal helps fund research and enables neuroscientists and surgeons at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (one of the world's leading centres for the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients) to establish the causes and the best possible treatment for brain tumour care.
Donating to a brain tumour charity and supporting The National Brain Appeal is a fantastic way to make a positive difference to the future.
