Brain tumour survivor bares all to raise awareness of research shortfall

Brain tumour survivor, Nicole Witts, bared all to
raise awareness of the need for increased
investment in research and launched2011’s
"Wear a Hat Day" on 25th March. By posing in
nothing but a pink hat, she wanted to raise
awareness of this deadly disease, which
claims the lives of more people under the age
of 40 than any other cancer.

Nicole was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2008. Following her recovery and in response to the lack of investment, Nicole felt compelled to make a brave statement that would draw the attention of the country towards this issue.

She comments: "Brain tumours are sometimes described as the `orphan disease' because so little is known about them and consequently so little funding is allocated to them. With more awareness, I hope more funding will come for research and education. I am thankful I'm alive to be a mum, but I want to ensure what happened to me doesn't happen to anyone else."
