Brain Tumour Support NZ

You can make a real difference to brain tumour patients in New Zealand. Please donate and help people to live better with a brain tumour.


We are New Zealand's leading brain tumour support charity and we are registered with the Charities Services. Our Vision is that anyone living with a brain tumour diagnosis will have the support, information and access to the best treatments, so that they feel less afraid, less alone and more empowered. We don't receive any government funding and are absolutely reliant on donations from the good people of Aotearoa.

Brain tumours can be malignant (cancer) or non-malignant (not cancer) and both can be equally life threatening. Brain cancer is different to other cancers. The brain is the most complex organ in our body, controlling almost everything we do. Brain tumours affect the very essence of who people are – their thoughts, emotions and behaviour. Brain tumours affect people physically, emotionally and cognitively. Brain tumours change people's lives dramatically.

Brain cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in children aged 19 and under - but it can literally affect people of any age.

Brain Tumour patients and their family are at the very heart of what we do.

- We provide information through our website and our patient guides.

- We put people in touch with a Support Friend who is a volunteer who has experienced what it is like to live with a brain tumour, or care for someone living with a brain tumour. They provide one to one support.

- We advocate for best treatments and care to be available for brain tumour patients here in New Zealand

We work hard to inform, support and advocate for New Zealand's brain tumour patents, their friends, family and whānau. You can find out about how we help and what we do on our website
