Amani Liaquat was diagnosed with a grade 4 glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) after collapsing at home on her 22nd birthday in April 2020. COVID-19 restrictions meant that she faced brain surgery and numerous scans with no visitors allowed at her bedside during a 12-day hospital stay. With very limited treatments options in the UK, the family decided to source lifesaving treatment from Germany. Thanks to the generosity of family, friends and complete strangers, more than £100,000 was raised in just 24 hours to help Amani access a new trial drug.
The family has worked with Brain Tumour Research to share Amani’s story, helping to raise awareness and supporting the charity’s #BrainTumourPetition and Stop the Devastation campaigns, as well as undertaking fundraising and campaigning activities. Now, they have set up Fight4Hope to raise funds to support vital research in order to find treatments that will provide hope for Amani and all patients facing a brain tumour diagnosis.
