Everyone is different and Meningioma is different in everyone
Meningioma UK was founded in 1998 by meningioma patients, Caroline Rutgers & Ella Pybus. Today, it continues to offer support & information to meningioma patients and carers affected by a meningeal tumour(s) of the brain or spinal cord.
Caroline Rutgers & Ekka Pybus first met as users of an American website in 1996 although we lived in the UK. Like most meningioma patients at the time, we felt isolated and confused when we were diagnosed with this strange-sounding brain tumour. So we decided to set up a support group & website to help others like ourselves affected by this type of tumour.
We continue to offer free support to patients, friends and carers, and clear jargon-free information.
We stand for greater awareness of meningioma tumours, for prompt diagnosis, quality care & research to find better treatments and a cure for Meningiomas.
