Spread the word

Spread the word about BBRF and about how vital research is if we are  to improve the lives of the many millions of people who suffer from a neurological condition.

Tell everyone you know that one in every six people in the UK has an injury or disorder of the brain or nervous system which affects their lives and that of their families and friends to a greater or lesser extent.    Head and spine injuries, nerve damage, dementia, migraine, epilepsy, meningitis, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s……..the list goes on and on.  Yet research into these conditions is grossly underfunded compared to other disease areas.

There is little difference between the human heart, lungs, liver or kidneys and those of other animals.  Research into disorders affecting these organs is health related only.  The thing that distinguishes humans from animals is our brain because it hosts our personality, feelings and consciousness.  Injury and disorders of the brain often affect these aspects (as well as memory, emotions, social interaction, thinking and understanding and much more) with devastating consequences for the patient and those close to them.  This makes research into the brain and nervous system different from that into other organs.   So far science has only scratched the surface in terms of developing our understanding of the workings of the brain and nervous system and how it is affected by injury and disorders.  This has to change – so please spread the word any way you can - our work is vital if we are to create a future where hope is turned into reality for the millions of people, young and old, whose lives are blighted by a neurological condition.
