BTRS - Brain Tumour Research & Support

BRAIN TUMOUR RESEARCH AND SUPPORT ACROSS YORKSHIRE (BTRS)

Founded in 2003 and originally named Andrea's Gift, BTRS is Yorkshire and Humber's leading brain tumour charity.

Offering practical, financial and emotional support to adult and child brain tumour patients with low and high grade tumours, together with their families and carers. We bring families together through social events and support groups and aim to give affected families the care and support they need that is not available through other organisations.

Collaboration is key - BTRS is a member charity of Brain Tumour Research, a national umbrella organisation that unites over 20 charities to collectively lobby parliament and campaign nationally for improved standards of care for brain tumour patients and increased funding for research.

Group HoC

Group HoC - We took 50 patients and supporters to meet their MPs at the House of Commons to lobby as a group with other brain tumour charities

We also work and partner other organisations locally that provide additional help and support our patient group. 

A fundamental aim for BTRS was to develop a brain tumour research lab at the University of Leeds, the hard work came to fruition in 2011 when the Translational Neuro-Oncology Group based at Leeds Institute of Molecular Medicine was launched. More than 20 scientists are now investigating different aspects of research, providing hope and information for brain tumour fighters everywhere.
