Since Sharon's dad died following a 9 month battle with an agressive brain tumour back in 2016, she has been trying to raise £2,740 to sponsor a day of research at one of Brain Tumour Research's centres of excellence. Walking on fire, wearing crazy hats, holding a tarantula and baking A LOT of cakes means we're almost at the finish now, but not quite...Our target of £274 is a tenth of the cost to fund a day of research. If we hit it, we'll be funding more than 2 hours worth of groundbreaking work.
This is a wonderful charity that doesn't get the recognition it deserves. The work of big hitters like Cancer Research UK is incredible but they have never given us the support that Brain Tumour Research has. They are too big to be able to do this. Brain Tumour Research is a small but incredibly talented charity.
At some point there will be a research breakthrough & we want to know that we've played a part, however small, in ensuring at least one more day of funding for this life changing research. Having met researchers first hand and seen some of the work they do in one of their centres Sharon can't praise the charity enough. They feel almost like family.
We'll do the Walk of Hope together as a family & anything you can spare will help the work of Brain Tumour Research. Their vision is to find a cure for brain tumours. Brain tumours are indiscriminate; they can affect anyone at any age. What’s more, they kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer... yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease. Brain Tumour Research is determined to change this.We are building a network of experts in sustainable research at dedicated Centres of Excellence whilst influencing the Government and larger cancer charities to invest more nationally.Help us fund the fight. Together we will find a cure.
