Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
As many of you know I'm partial to a little madness, well this all just got a little madder!! I was devastated in 2001 when, at 61, my Dad died of a brain tumour. To watch him suffer for 6 months is something that I can't even verbalise. It consumed his whole world. As we know the brain is the 'computer' for our every function from speaking to walking and finally breathing. To watch that 'computer' fail to load properly on a daily basis when you have no 'updates' to cure this virus is soul destroying.
I passionately believe in evolution but that requires us to adapt and have knowledge which comes from research, hence why I am raising funds for Brain Tumour Research. There must be more that we can do to alleviate the pain and suffering and the ultimate goal is a cure but this can only be done if those with fully functioning and very clever brains can be targeted to 'unpick' what nature has placed in the way.
Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer. https://bit.ly/2vVGYUE
16,000 people diagnosed with a brain tumour every year
This disease has gone on to take some other very special people in my life:
Ivor Paul, Curtis Palmer, Angela Cowell and Linda Hawkins
which is why I had to get off my ass and do something and all that I can do is raise funds so that others can work their magic to ensure that this list of stunning individuals doesn't get any longer and I don't have to sit in another crematorium asking 'why'.
