In the six and a half years I have been with the charity so much has changed, but there’s still so much to do to improve options and outcomes for those devastated by this cruel disease

What is your favourite memory?

Ah. The sports car I had before starting a family!

    You are correct in saying that this is an extremely cruel disease, that no only affects the person in unimaginable ways but also their loved ones. My brother in law was diagnosed after Christmas, and it has been an emotional journey since. I take my lead from him, as he has shown to be strong and is working hard at keeping positive (although I can only imagine how difficult this is).
    We need to increase awareness and the profile of Brain Tumours as it can affect anyone…As a nurse I was shocked by how little funding is given to Brain Tumours considering it is the largest Killer of cancer in children and those under 40.
    The Various Brain Tumour Charities are doing an amazing job in raising funds, awareness and support for those living with Brain Tumours, but our Government needs to do more and make this an urgent priority. More money needs to be allocated to Brain Tumour Research so that one day a cure can be found. In the meantime all we have is Hope that this will come in time…..
