We want to find a cure for GBM…
Sounds really simple if you say it fast enough, but simple it isn’t. To do it will require creativity, research, drive and energy.
OK so, we’ve already told you that Headcase is the ONLY charity in the UK currently raising funds solely to provide research to find a cure for the most common and aggressive type of adult brain tumour, namely GBM. The reason why we’re doing that is that research for brain tumours as a whole receives just 1.4% of total cancer spend in the UK and that’s an amount that we feel is, quite simply, crap.
We’ve also mentioned that we currently fund Research at Universities across the UK and our plan is to raise £1 million per year! Yes you read that right… £1 million each and every year.
But it goes way beyond that. Our Funding and Research Strategies are all about collaboration with other UK and Global Research Centres. We’ve got the freedom to do what we want and when we want. We’ll be seeking out other people who share our Vision and who can bring their own drive, individuality and energy.
That’s going to mean raising even more!
We don’t expect to do that overnight so we’ve put a 5 Year Plan into place to achieve it. Also we don’t expect to achieve our aims just through conventional fundraising. We want to engage people differently; we want to give you something back for your money!
We want to be different to other Charities, not because we can, but because we feel that we should be. We want to stand out, we want to engage people, we want you to come with us….
… we want to find a cure for GBM.
Simple. Period. Fact.
