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


Darel was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme, an extremely aggressive brain tumour in December 2014.  Darel bravely fought this cruel disease for 15 months but lost his battle February 26th 2016, aged 34.

Darel was a gentle and kind soul who made an impression on anyone he met and touched everyone's hearts. His bravery throughout his diagnosis was awe inspiring and his sense of humour and beautiful smile never wavered.

Darel's partner of 12 years Natalie, has set up 'The Darel Bryan Foundation' in honour of Darel, so we can carry on fighting. With your help we would love to raise more awareness for brain tumours and to fund much needed research. So not only we can gain a better understanding to what the causes of brain tumours are, but to have better treatment options available for future patients. Hopefully one day there can be a better outcome for those diagnosed with this devastating disease.

The Darel Bryan Foundation is an umbrella group under Brain Tumour Research who we are very proud to work with. They have several dedicated research centres throughout the UK, where vital research is happening. It costs £1 million per year to run one of these centres. Through your donations we hope to be able to contribute towards this invaluable research.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your support!

Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer. Just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this disease. We are a leading voice calling for support and action for research into what is called the last battleground against cancer.
