The "Deutsche Hirntumorhilfe e.V." (German Brain Tumor Association) – a brain tumor association registered in Germany – is a non-profit organisation dedicated to provide information and support to brain tumor patients. Since its foundation in 1998 more than 500 members from fourteen nations have been registered. Patients and their family members as well as health professionals and scientists get involved within this network with a common goal: Finding a cure for brain tumors – as fast as possible.

The Deutsche Hirntumorhilfe supports science and research especially in the field of neuro-oncology. According to its motto “Knowledge Creates Future”, the association has a special interest in the advancement of scientific research. Apart from providing recent information about therapy standards and proceedings to brain tumor patients, the organisation supports neuro-oncological research projects and facilitates the international transfer of knowledge. The promotion of interdisciplinary cooperation of all the areas of expertise involved in the treatment of brain tumors is one of its major aims.

As a tribute to all brain tumor patients and their families the Deutsche Hirntumorhilfe announced the World Brain Tumor Day in 2000 as an international commemoration day. It is celebrated annually on 8 June.
