National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £35 million a year
Hazel’s stepping into the spotlight
A woman who lost her husband to a brain tumour is making the headlines as she steps out to help find a cure.
Hazel Cornwall is taking part in our 10,000 Steps a Day in February Challenge in memory of her husband, Scott, who died from a glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) in September 2020. Scott was diagnosed with a brain tumour July 2019, after he complained that the cleaning spray Hazel was using had a “terrible smell”, and experienced auras and sweet and sour tastes in his mouth.
As well as fundraising, Hazel is raising awareness of the disease, reaching thousands as she shares Scott’s story, including in The Mirror Online, Metro and Daily Record.
Hazel, who has already raised nearly £600, said: “When Scott was diagnosed with a GBM, he was handed a death sentence. It’s so important to raise money for research so something can be done about this devastating disease.
“I just want to be able to help the next person who has to go through this.”
