Amani Liaquat was diagnosed with a grade 4 glioblastoma (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 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. Sadly however, Amani passed away aged 23, less than two years after diagnosis on 21 February 2022.
The family is working with Brain Tumour Research to share Amani’s story, helping to raise awareness and, with Amani, has supported the charity’s #BrainTumourPetition and Stop the Devastation campaigns, as well as undertaking fundraising and campaigning activities. While Amani was still fighting, they set up Fight4Hope to raise funds to support vital research in order to find treatments that will provide hope for patients facing a brain tumour diagnosis. Since her death, her parents and sisters remain committed to continuing Amani’s amazing legacy.
