“He was diagnosed approximately one year ago and myself and my family watched him slowly disappear.

“It’s an absolutely horrendous disease. Cancer is awful no matter which cancer it is but a brain tumour, in particular, takes away that person’s identity a lot.

“Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer in children and adults under 40.

“Out of £600 million which is raised currently in the UK, less than three per cent goes to brain tumour funding for treatments.”
