Welcome to the John King Brain Tumour Foundation


We are a registered charity supporting the Atkinson Morley Wing of St George’s Hospital to treat brain diseases and disorders. With your support, we are fundraising for surgical equipment and research not currently funded by the NHS and also the McKissock Ward roof garden which the foundation maintains.

Saving lives with cutting-edge research

Our charity works with a simple vision: to improve the outcomes for patients with brain diseases and disorders. Our mission is to make a tangible difference by fundraising to encourage further research and advanced treatments. 

Over 4,700

  brain tumours are diagnosed annually in the UK. Your donation will help us fund pioneering research that could save the lives of thousands of diagnosed patients.

80% Mortality

Glioblastoma is the most aggressive brain tumour in adults. Only 20% of diagnosed patients will survive for more than one year, and just 3% of patients survive more than three years. 

Less than 2%

Less than 2% of government funding for brain tumour medical research goes into surgical discipline, but a third of hospital admissions involve surgery.
