Quote from Becky Haggar-Kaikitis OBE, Charity Founder and former Mayor of Hillingdon
Here at Hillingdon Brain Tumour and Injury Group we offer everyone a voice to be heard, to not feel alone and bring hope and support by providing tools for the neurological life journey ahead. Delivering independence and confidence with neurological disability.
We work with our clients encouraging them to help the local community whilst they are gaining skills sets to cope with life challenges including loss of memory, seizures, emotions and physical paralysis.
Due to increased demand, we have had to expand by opening our new pop up shop run by our clients which will also support the community through the cost of living crisis offering teas coffees, clothes and essential products at affordable prices.
We urgently need your support to enable the provision of client and community support.
Quote from Xeli Grana, a client of the charity
Since my diagnosis of various life threatening illnesses, I felt lost, alone, fearing each day with little hope of ever feeling part of this world again. Until I was guided to the Brain Tumour & Injury Charity. I have never felt more alive, hopeful, joyful, and less afraid. I am not alone, I have made new friends, who understand fully. We speak the same language. The charity has given me a new perspective and a more vibrant ‘joie de vivre’. They have lifted up my spirits and support me in every way possible. I thank God such a community exists amidst the challenges we are faced with. But we face them together as one.
Quote from Emmanuel Daudu – Chair of Trustees
