Jason Willis Foundation– Raising Funds for Brain Tumour Research
Jen Willis set up the Jason Willis Foundation after losing her husband to a brain tumour. Jason was diagnosed with a glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) in January 2019. Following brain surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, in January 2020, he received the heart-breaking news that his aggressive tumour had continued to grow. He was cared for at home by his wife throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Jason died in October 2020, aged 44, leaving Jen and their two young daughters.
Jen has launched the Jason Willis Foundation to keep Jason’s legacy alive. She has vowed to continue fundraising in his honour and in honour of all the families who’ve been touched by this horrific disease to help find better treatment options and a cure for brain tumours.
