In Our Hearts

Less than 20% of those diagnosed with a brain tumour survive beyond five years

The diagnosis of a brain tumour is devastating for the patient, their family and friends. 

For these people life will never be the same again.

These very brave people will remain in our hearts for ever and it is because of them that we are fighting to find a cure so that no other family should have to suffer in the same way.

We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday, and days before that too.
Anon

You are forever in our hearts.

In 1995 Ian was diagnosed with a brain tumour.  Married to Sally with three children, Ian counted himself one of the lucky ones because he survived so long.  In 2009 the tumour turned cancerous and he had to undergo an operation to remove part of it and then undergo a fairly intensive period of chemotherapy whilst training for the famous three peaks challenge, which became known as Meek’s Peaks.  Sadly Ian passed away on 1st August 2012 leaving a legacy of research at Leeds University having raised over £105,000.
