Caring for children with brain tumours
Tom’s Trust provides psychological support for children with brain tumours and their families. A brain tumour diagnosis is incredibly traumatic, it has a huge impact on the mental, physical and emotional wellbeing of a child, leaving them with life-long difficulties. Sadly, a third of children diagnosed with a brain tumour will die, and of those that survive, a huge 62% will be left with life altering disabilities.
Tom’s Trust is the only UK charity focused solely on providing psychological support for children with brain tumours and their families – a service that is greatly needed but almost entirely absent across the UK. During the COVID-19 crisis their work continues and is more important than ever. Your micro-donations, made when shopping with Adnams in June and July 2020, will help Tom’s Trust make a difference.
