We fund long-term, sustainable research to find a cure for brain tumours


In May 2014 our previously fit and well mam aged 56 took ill with what was thought to be an ear infection, 24hours later I received a call from my dad informing me that mam had been admitted to hospital after deterorating with weakness and confusion. 

That evening our families world was blown apart as we were informed that our mam had a brain tumour. Nobody expected her to see out that weekend, but our mam was a fighter and thou never quite the same again she regained consciousness 72 hours later. A week later we were informed of a diagnosis of terminal brain cancer and told that there was  nothing that could be done. 

We luckily got to spend 12 weeks making memories before our mam lost her all to short fight with brain cancer surrounded by her loving family at home.

As a family we have discovered that Brain Tumours are the biggest killers of children and adults under 40, yet there is only one national charity funding sustainable research into brain tumours who receive just  1% of the national cancer research spend.

I feel just over 3 years on, its time to not only hopefully raise some money for this great cause but equally as important increase awareness.
