Conventional treatment such as whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT) carries poor prognosis and risk of long term cognitive impairment. Gamma Knife Radiosurgery in one of the most effective treatment for brain metastasis and significantly improves survival and quality of life.

Apart from brain metastasis, the Gamma Knife Charitable Fund has now extended its sponsorship to include treatment of other tumours including Glioblastomas, Meningiomas, Acoustic Schwannomas, Pituitary adenomas and Arteriovenous malformations.

Brain Met Fund

Brain Met Fund 成立於2006年,旨在為無能力支付伽馬刀放射手術費用的腦轉移癌患者提供資助。腦轉移癌是最常見的腦癌疾病,其發病率約為每年每一百萬人中就有400位發病。以香港700萬人為例,每年患有腦轉移癌的患者便高達2800人。傳統治療 (如全腦放射治療) 的預後不良會帶來認知障礙症的風險。然而,伽馬刀放射手術是治療腦轉移癌的有效手術之一,可大幅改善患者的存活率和生活素質。

有經濟困難的腦轉移癌患者可透過 Brain Met Fund 申請治療資助。基金會將會評估每名患者是否符合資格申請資助。若患者符合申請資格,其治療費用將獲部份或全部被豁免。如欲獲得更多詳細資料,請致電 2522 2332 或發送電郵至 info@thebraincentre.org
