Story

Gemma is a mum of 2 young children, Garyson and Hadley, wife to Graeme aka Baz. Diagnosed with grade 4 glioblastoma, a terminal brain tumour, in 2019 .

The Tumour is very rare & inoperable so standard treatment (Intensive Chemotherapy and Radiotherpay) wasn’t effective, and in fact made Gemma incredibly ill.

Gemma is now over 36 months into a 12 month prognosis due to a trial drug from Germany called ONC201 which cost in excess of £5k month. Imagine having to find £5k a month to stay alive!

Gemma started a blog in 2019 to document her diagnosis, treatment and living with Brain Cancer. She shares the raw day to day reality of what live is like and you will be able to see why she is loved so much from reading this...and why I want to help.

Gemmas god children ahve also set up a brand of clothing called Warrior Wear GL365 (see my profile picture above) in order to help raise funds for Gemma. All profits raised from sales go towards the cost of Gemmas treatment, if you'd like to buy any of the items you can find them on facebook, instagram and below is their website too.
