Wear a Hat Day in Brain Tumour Awareness Month
Brain Tumour Action are encouraging organisations, schools, colleges even local churches and pubs to pick a date in March and hold a Wear a Hat day for brain tumours and donate a pound (or more if they so wish) to go towards brain tumour research.
33% more children died from a brain tumour in 2007 than 2001
16,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with a brain tumour each year
More children and people under the age of 40 die of a brain tumour than leukaemia or any other cancer and five year survival is still only 14%
