What Do We Do?
Campaign For My Brain raises awareness of several neurological diseases, and we have no limit. We recognise the stigma, isolation, discrimination, and exclusion that sufferers and carers can continually feel. We also know the battle is constant, the battle for getting the care that is rightly due and needed. If you have a neurological disease you want us to raise the profile of, contact us now.
Along with educating and raising awareness, Campaign For My Brain will be running future projects aimed at making a change to the systems that define what care is needed. There are downloadable documents FREE to download in the useful resources section.

Why The Campaign Began
Hi, my name is Emma and Campaign For My Brain was my brainchild. Protecting my Mum has always been a driver for me fighting for what is right. The more I have had to fight, the more saddened I feel about those who don’t know how to fight, or cannot. The thought of my Mum going through her disease without me being able to obtain the care I have for her makes me feel sick to the pit of my stomach. I simply cannot stand by and let this happen to others. It is time for change; I don’t care about budgets, I don’t care about how long this takes, I care about equality.

Support Our Growth
This campaign started as a one man band, but within days Emma and Catrin came together, both having been equally affected by devastating neurological disease in their family, Huntington’s disease. Through networking and supporting, we have made some collaborative plans to start making projects happen as early as January 2019. We are a group of volunteers, passionate about making a change and improving lives. We all have families and full-time employment, we welcome any support that can be offered and would love to hear from you.
