Praise for Headway from Paul Blomfield MP

A historic Parliamentary debate on brain tumour research took place in Westminster on 18th April and was attended by over 60 MPs.  Sue Farrington Smith from Brain Tumour Research initiated this debate in collaboration with members from The Brain Tumour Consortium

Paul Blomfield (Labour MP for Sheffield Central) attended and spoke out in praise of the excellent support that Headway offers:

“Shortly after my election to this place in 2010, I was diagnosed with a brain tumour, an experience I share with the hon. Member for Hexham (Guy Opperman). We were both able to return to the House fully fit thanks to the excellent work of surgical teams in the NHS in Sheffield and in London. Does the hon. Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Ian Blackford) recognise that, alongside research, support for victims of brain tumours is also important? Does he recognise and celebrate the excellent work done by charities such as Headway, which supports those suffering from the consequences of brain tumours and other brain injuries?”
