Brain and spinal tumoursIf your child has been diagnosed with a brain or spinal tumour, our free booklet, 'My child has a brain or spinal tumour', is here to accompany you through this journey.

It was written with the help of parents and carers who have been through something similar to you. They told us what it was like for them, and what they learned along the way, so that we can share it with you. You can find their experiences and tips throughout the booklet.

It gives an overview of the conditions, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation, as well as how to look after your child, yourself and loved ones.
