Help us find a way to make brain tumours go the way of the dinosaurs
In May 2018, 8 year old Gideon was diagnosed with an aggressive GBM tumour. Gideon’s treatment involved surgery, radiotherapy and targeted chemotherapy treatment. During this time, our family were privileged to spend extraordinary quality time with him. Gideon was a gorgeous, funny and gentle boy, devoted to his siblings and family. He loved going to school, loved all things cookie-monster related and entertained everyone with his quirky sense of humour and fantastic memory. In May 2019, almost 12 months after diagnosis, Gideon died at age 9.
Brain cancer research is on the tipping point. We can all be part of making important breakthroughs happen. Our participation is something that we can do to support the science and in the meantime the patients. For all the people out there currently battling brain tumours and for those who couldn’t wait for research to progress any longer.
We know we can find a way to make brain cancer go the way of the dinosaurs. Make a donation to our page and be part of making brains matter, together we can change the odds for young people.
In honour of the lainen for Gideon
