Proceeds will also go towards supporting people living with the physical and emotional impact of a brain tumour on them and their families.

The Brain Tumour Charity has launched its first range of t-shirts, in partnership with ethical and sustainable clothing brand Teemill, to champion and support the ‘Great Minds’ of people within its unique community.

The Brain Tumour Charity has joined forces with Teemill to release five bold, unique and eye-catching designs which are available on a range of t-shirts for men, women and children exclusively at https://thebraintumourcharityfashion.co.uk/

For each T-shirt sold, 50 per cent of the profits is donated to The Brain Tumour Charity to help find a cure for brain tumours – the biggest cancer killer of children and under-40s in the UK – as well as supporting people living with a brain tumour.

The Great Minds theme was chosen by Emeline, 22, from Meersbrook, Sheffield, along with her fellow Young Ambassadors nationwide. They are all living with a brain tumour themselves or have been affected by a family member’s diagnosis.

Emeline, a final year Leeds University student and former pupil of Meadowhead School Academy Trust and All Saints Catholic High School, was diagnosed with an Anaplastic Astrocytoma in 2018 during her second year at University of Leeds.Following a seizure in her sleep, Emeline was diagnosed with a brain tumour that needed to be operated on in order to stop the growth.Emeline had awake surgery in July 2018 to remove as much of the tumour as possible. After the surgery, Emeline was told that she would need further treatment - six weeks of radiotherapy and 12 rounds of chemotherapy.Emeline has since finished all treatment and has MRI scans every three months.
