This chapter, ‘Patient and caregiver advocacy’, examines the context for advocacy for people who are living with a brain tumour, why it is different, how it manifests itself, and what advocacy looks like. It explores the challenges that come with living with a brain tumour and how advocacy can alleviate these challenges. The different advocacy roles are reviewed, including an exploration of how some patients can become advocates for others, while others do not. Underpinning this however is a need to be responsive and agile throughout what can be a very fluid, dynamic, and complex journey. Anyone who finds themselves supporting someone who is living with a brain tumour will find this chapter useful.
