Dale Barclay Fund
This Fundraising Group was set up by Dale’s wife, Laura, after he passed away nine months after being diagnosed with a glioblastoma (GBM) brain tumour.
A lead vocalist and musician who was well known on the alternative music scene, Dale suffered a number of seizures and an excruciating headache with vomiting prior to diagnosis. He underwent surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy and was stable for a few months. When an MRI scan revealed regrowth, Dale was turned down for further surgery on the NHS, but had a craniotomy privately. Tragically he died just a few days after this, aged 32.
Laura, also a musician, was shocked that there was no effective treatment available for Dale. She wants Dale’s legacy to fund research that will help move treatments forward towards extending the life of brain tumour patients and eventually finding a cure.
