Story

Sadly Steve gave up his battle with this terrible disease and passed away peacefully in his sleep on Tues 27th Feb ❤️

Our brother, Steve, was diagnosed with grade 4 glioblastoma last September, age 71. Just the month before he had been enjoying a walking/sightseeing with his wife in Austria. He still worked full time, driving his beloved wagon, a job he had had for many years and still loved being out on the road.

Shockingly, only 1.37% of available funding is allocated to Brain Tumour Research. This is why I have decided to have my head shaved to raise funds for this vital research. It will not help my big brother but if we can prevent families in the future facing the heartbreak this cruel illness brings then it's worth a bit of hair!

Please dig deep and share this page far and wide. Thank you from all of Steve's family ❤️
