We are here.

We know that this is a very challenging time for people living with brain tumours, particularly anyone receiving a new diagnosis. We want to continue to support you, your families and/or carers.

What is the most difficult aspect of COVID-19 for you at the moment? Is there any way that burden can be eased for you?

Contact us at info@braintumourireland.com or by calling 085 7219000. The phone is manned Monday – Thursday but if you do not get us immediately you can leave a message and we will get back to you.

Together we will get through this challenging time.

An important public notice was placed in newspapers by Beaumont Hospital this weekend.

If you or an adult family member were treated for a brain tumour at Beaumont Hospital between 29 November 1987 and 7 August 2018 you should consult this website here.

The website describes a study being conducted by Beaumont Hospital and it explains how you or your family member can be excluded from the research if you so choose.

All queries in relation to the study can be directed to btis@beaumont.ie or by calling 017977726.

So many wonderful women and girls have run the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon for us over the years.

We would like to say a huge thanks to all of them and thanks also to anyone doing the virtual event for us this year which takes place between October 1st and 10th.

All the details you need for this year’s virtual event are here.

We hope to see you all in person again at next year’s Mini Marathon!
