Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I am trying to get as many friends, family, colleagues and more to join me on a hike up goat fell in Arran on Sunday 24th of March. 9am meet for 9.45am ferry at Ardrossan. (Time changed since first post)
Most friends may know that just over a year ago on 3rd January 2018 I underwent brain surgery to have a brain tumour and cyst removed.
My story went as follows: December 6th 2017 I started to have continuous headaches everyday. After 14 consecutive days of headaches I went to the GP and over the next week or so tried various pills that treated suspected migraines, cluster headaches and sinusitis but with no avail. On 29th December now 23 days of headaches at the stage where I could barely get out of bed and was being physically sick with the pain I was sent to A&E in Ayr for a CT scan. This is were I was diagnosed with a brain tumour that had a cyst attached. Sent via ambulance straight to the Queen Elizabeth in Glasgow I was monitored for 4days until the 3rd Jan where I underwent the 5 and a half hour surgery.
Now just over a year on, having made a full recovery and back to full health, I would like to raise money for the Brain Tumour Research Charity. I am one of the lucky ones whose brain tumour was diagnosed and could be removed with no further surgery or chemotherapy. It’s frightening to think that brain tumours are the biggest killer of children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer. My aim is to raise the awareness of brain tumours and raise funds for further research.
It would be great if you could come along and join us on the hike, all donations to the cause will be appreciated.
If you are able to join us please send me a message so I can add you to a group with further details nearer the 24th of March.
