The Nick Cotton Foundation
Nick was just 30 years old and recently married when he passed away less than 10 months after being diagnosed with an anaplastic oligodendroglioma brain tumour. Throughout his treatment he remained the intelligent and witty man we all knew him to be, putting other people first and making sure they were okay. Nick wanted to help others suffering from the same condition which took him from his family and loving wife, Rachael Cotton.
Rachael has now helped to set up The Nick Cotton Foundation to raise money for Brain Tumour Research to help others suffering from this devastating disease. We often hear about all the wonderful advances in treatments for so many different illnesses, including other cancers, but Nick’s brain tumour journey highlighted the desperate need for more effective treatments and ultimately a cure to bring hope to the thousands of people diagnosed with a brain tumour every year.
