Cat in a Hat

This Fundraising Group was set up by her family after Catherine Anderson was diagnosed with a grade 2 brain tumour in August 2014 which quickly progressed to being grade 4 by the end of the same year. The name 'Cat in a Hat' was inspired by the many hats that Cat was given by friends and family, particularly to cover hair loss caused by her treatment. Throughout her brain tumour journey, Cat remained upbeat and incredibly positive, always laughing and joking.  
Tragically, it became clear that chemotherapy wasn’t slowing regrowth of the tumour and Cat lost her brave battle on 14th June 2017, aged just 38. Her friends and family, including Cat’s father, Rab, (despite his nursing background) were all shocked to find that brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer and will continue to raise awareness and funds to help find more effective treatments and ultimately the cure which is so desperately needed.
