Pictured here from left to right – Andrew Selous, Nigel Adams, Matthew Offord, Caroline Dinenage, Andrew Jones, Anna Soubry and Julian Brazier.
All have either personal experiences of someone diagnosed with a brain tumour or have been influenced by their constituent, representing Brain Tumour Research member charities, Umbrella Groups and Supporters across the UK. Many others pledged their support but were not able to join the photo.
