Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of UK children .
16,000 people each year in the UK are diagnosed with a brain tumour.
More people under 40 die of a brain tumour than from any other cancer.
Only 14% of those diagnosed with a brain tumour survive beyond 5 years (compared with 50% for all cancers)
25% of all cancers spread to the brain •65% more women die from a brain tumour than from cervical cancer.
Every year there is a 4% increase in incidence.
THESE ARE ONLY SOME OF THE FACTS:
