Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit Warwick School's JustGiving page.

Hi my name is Jacob and I’ll be going into Year 9 in September 2018.

On the 9th September 2014 I had a brain scan at hospital because I wasn’t feeling very well.  Shockingly that evening I was rushed to Birmingham Children’s Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.  The following day I was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour and was rushed into the theatre so the surgeons could take a biopsy. I was in the theatre for 11 hours that day, that day being my 10th Birthday…. After the operation I spent a long time in hospital.  Then we- my parents and my brother Oscar went to Florida to complete a course of Proton Beam Therapy.  We spent 3 and a half months in Florida to receive treatment.
Since America, I have had lots of operations and continue to have regular MRI scans (which I really don’t like!).

I really want to help others and aim to prevent and support other children, adults and families going through the experience I and my family are faced with on a daily basis.

My wish is to understand and defeat brain tumours.

The start of this is at the Warwick School, the Twilight walk, 4 years after my diagnosis.

“I’m am really looking forward to the Twilight Walk and hope others will join a group of us walking from Warwick School on Sunday 30th September”

Please walk with me and make the 2018
Twilight walk the best one yet!
