Started on 2nd July 2020 Hawick, Scotland, United Kingdom

As most of you know, dad was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year.  His tumour was a glioblastoma in the temporal lobe. Brain tumours kill more children and adults under 40 than any other cancer, yet only 1% of UK spend on cancer research is allocated to it.

The survival rate is on average 15 months for those who have surgery to remove it.  But the tumour is never completely gotten rid of, and comes back aggressively.

We were so lucky to have the time we did with dad, but I can honestly say it has been the hardest 13 months of our lives,  watching dad deteriorate. I find it difficult to believe that there isn't more information out there on treating a glioblastoma.  

It's for this reason my family and I are raising money, in dads name, for Brain Tumour UK.  We can't change what happened to dad, but hopefully we can contribute in some way to finding a treatment that will give other families more time together. Anything you can contribute towards helping me achieve my target will be massively appreciated. 

Thank you.
