National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £35 million a year
Welcoming our newest Fundraising Group
We are pleased to welcome a new Fundraising Group to our family.
Perry’s Legacy was set up by Carly Busby in memory of her father, Perry Brown. Perry was diagnosed with a grade 4 glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) brain tumour and passed away just nine months later in July 2020, aged 60. He left his wife, Tracey, children, Carly, Luke and Claire, and four grandchildren.
After losing Perry, the family raised more than £4,000 for Brain Tumour Research asking for funeral donations in place of flowers. Now, they have set up the Perry’s Legacy Fundraising Group to raise vital funds in his name to prevent other families from experiencing the heartache of losing a loved one to a brain tumour.
We look forward to an exciting future working with Perry’s Legacy.
Our Fundraising Groups champion the fight against brain tumours and raise thousands for our cause. They help us build a network of experts in sustainable research at dedicated Centres of Excellence and support us as we influence the Government and larger cancer charities to invest more nationally.
