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


3 years ago my sister Carlie was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer.  She underwent 21 rounds of chemotherapy (that’s over a year!) and 3 weeks of radiotherapy, then a mastectomy…she felt that she'd beaten it.

After a few months of persistent headaches at the start of 2021, Carlie visited the GP...various tests and investigations revealed a large tumour in her brain - secondary breast cancer. Fast forward 3 months and she'd had brain surgery to remove it and was recovering well. Things were looking up again and Carlie was enjoying life with family and friends. 

However,  a week before Christmas 2021, the follow-up scans from the surgery showed that cancer had returned. She had several more tumours in her brain.

My sisters are now on a year-long mission to raise the profile of brain tumour research, increase funding and awareness -  whilst getting fit and making fun memories.

They plan to raise £27,400 by 31st December 2022 as this amount will fund just 10 days of brain tumour research.

This page is my contribution to the total. I've always been a sprinter and never sign up to these events normally so please, if you can, donate to the cause.

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.
