We help the brain tumour community to feel less alone and more in control


Following on from 2014 and 2015 10K runs for Lucas I am running again this year with friends to raise funds for Brainstrust.

With your support, a child like Lucas will one day, live a longer high quality of life.

Something I believe in my heart Lucas would want for others.

We hope you are able to support this and make a difference.

• Brain tumours kill more children than leukaemia and any other cancer.

• Brain tumours are one of the few conditions becoming more prevalent — they are now more common than in 1970.

• Yet, between 2002 and 2012, total National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) spending on brain tumour research was only 0.8% of their total spend during this period, and this represents a huge inequality.

Please donate what you can today.

Thank you.
