WE NEED YOUR HELP….
Did you know that brain tumours kill more children & adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer?
More children than Leukaemia.
More men under 45 than prostate cancer & yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease.
I’m Alicia co-founder of the Southwell Scoop & this is something very close to my heart, having lost my brother Rik, to this deadly disease 19 months ago.
Rik was diagnosed with primary lung cancer & secondary brain tumour at the young age of 49 & given 3 months to live! I just can’t put into words the devastation it caused our family & yet i also can’t put into words Rik’s positivity & determination to try & beat this disease. He never ever spoke about the ‘What ifs’ it was always the ‘I wills…’
Together with changing his whole lifestyle & his sheer positivity he nearly tripled his outcome, but sadly, on the 28th June 2016 (my sister’s birthday) he lost his battle to cancer, having just turned 50, four weeks earlier.
Www.braintumourresearch.org are campaigning to see the national spend on research into brain tumours increase to £30-£35 million a year in line with breast cancer & Leukaemia.
