Story

The James Allen Brain Tumour Trust has been set up in memory of James Allen who died of a brain tumour on 24th October 2011 after a brave five year battle.  He was 12.  James was diagnosed with a medulloblastoma, a form of brain tumour that though rare, is the commonest form of childhood cancer.  James was always keen to help others and the Trust has been set up with the objective of helping other children suffering from the same condition.  James helped out at University College Hospital by volunteering to help with a booklet to explain to other children how to deal with radiotherapy and the first objective of the Trust will be to fund clinical research and patient support projects that are closely connected to James and his treatment.

In the United States, the masks that children have to wear when undergoing radiotherapy are made into Superheros to try to bring some fun to a time-intensive and difficult treatment.  The Trust would like to fund the masks at UCH for children undergoing radiotherapy there and the initial donations will be targeted at providing that opportunity to children as soon as possible. 

 

This page has been set up by the Foundation for Social Improvement but all donations will be going towards The James Allen Brain Tumour Trust fund.
