National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £30-35 million a year
Our Fundraising Group Power of David tell their story to the national media
One of our newest Fundraising Groups, the Power of David, was set up in memory of David Hetherington (whose photograph you can see here), a loving husband and dad of two.
David was diagnosed with a low-grade oligoastrocytoma, which over time changed to a grade four glioblastoma. He underwent chemotherapy, radiotherapy and immunotherapy to control the tumour but David sadly passed in November 2016 at the age of 39, leaving his wife, Shaz, and two young children Layla and Daniel.
The name Power of David was inspired by David’s ability to impact others in a positive way – a quality which Shaz called his ‘superpower’. The group embodies his hope and positivity, keeping David’s memory alive and raising vital funds for research.
Today Shaz has told her story honestly and movingly to The Sun newspaper and you can read it here.
