Brainwaves NI is Northern Ireland’s only volunteer led brain tumours research and support charity

Research is fundamental to finding a cure for brain tumour. We have a strong relationship with the Patrick G Johnston Centre for Cancer Research, Queen’s University, Belfast.

Over the last number of years we have provided over £500,000 funding towards that vital research.

Michaela Chambers


My name is Michaela Chambers and I have been secretary for Brainwaves NI since January 2020. Due to the sudden loss of my husband in 2017, I was unable to go back to my full-time employment as I had to care for my daughter Rebecca who was 3 years old at the time. My Dad was also unwell and in and out of hospital a lot for many years. Unfortunately, my Dad passed away in September 2019 from Cancer.

I was looking for a new challenge and noticed an advert from Brainwaves NI, for a secretary and felt it would be a good opportunity for me to do something positive. Although I do not have experience of brain tumours, since starting with Brainwaves NI I have learnt a great deal. I feel great empathy from the loss of family members and know the heartache of caring for someone who has a long-term illness.

I will be your first port of call when contacting Brainwaves NI and will point patients in the right direction. We at Brainwaves NI are here to help.
