Contour Cosmetics are proud to be supporting brain tumour charity HeadSmart to help raise awareness of the most common signs and symptoms of brain tumours in children and teenagers. Early diagnosis of brain tumours can save lives - so we've set up a really easy way to donate by simply adding 10p, 50p or £1 to your shopping cart, just head here and add the amount to your basket.
Each week in the UK, around ten children or teenagers are diagnosed with a brain tumour. The time taken from a child’s first symptoms to diagnosis of a brain tumour for half of the children to be diagnosed is currently 12-13 weeks in the UK, the other half take longer, sometimes up to a year or two. Other countries show that half the cases are diagnosed in as little as 5 weeks, so the UK's falling behind.
The aim of the HeadSmart campaign is to reduce the time it takes to diagnose children and young people with brain tumours in the UK by educating healthcare professionals and the public about the symptoms of brain tumours in children and young people.
Currently, 1 child dies every 3 days of a brain tumour. The HeadSmart campaign needs to raise £100,000 to help in its aim to reduce the time it takes to diagnose a child and so save lives and reduce long term disability.
You can find the donation page in the Contour Cosmetics shop, it's super easy to donate 10p, 50p or £1 by adding it to your basket alongside your usual Contour shop.
Thank you for helping to support an amazing charity.
