"Losing Adam devastated our family and all we could do was channel our grief into fundraising. Nothing will ever make up for our loss but putting our energy into funding the fight against brain tumours gives us hope.

"By sharing Adam’s story and raising awareness, we want to show people that some good can come from the pain. Only research can bring us closer to that light at the end of the tunnel.” – Kerry

Adam sadly died from a brain tumour in 2014 aged 42. He was diagnosed with an aggressive glioblastoma multiforme. The tumour was inoperable but he underwent radiotherapy and chemotherapy. However, despite treatment, Adam deteriorated and passed away less than a year after his diagnosis.

Adam, who was a farmer at Shotley Bridge in County Durham, left his parents Terry and Ann, sister Kerry, brother-in-law Carl and three young nieces, Gracie, Ellie and Lauren.

This Christmas, Adam's family want your help to raise £5,000 to improve treatment options, and ultimately, find a cure.

Donate below to make this family's wish come true this Christmas.
