Thomas MacIntyre-Valentine Memorial Fund
Thomas MacIntyre-Valentine was diagnosed with an inoperable brainstem glioma in 2012. Following his diagnosis, he was treated with radiotherapy and chemotherapy and put on steroids. He lived with the tumour for eight years, but in February 2020, it started to spread and he declined quickly. Thomas passed away in June 2020, aged 30.
A year on from her tragic loss, Thomas’ wife Sheira has set up The Thomas MacIntyre-Valentine Memorial Fund to continue his legacy. The Fundraising Group will ensure his memory lives on, whilst raising money and awareness to help find a cure for this devastating disease.
