Brain Tumour Research
Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer... yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease. This is unacceptable! We are striving to fund a network of seven dedicated research centres whilst challenging the government and larger cancer charities to invest more in brain tumour research. Help us fund the fight. Together we will find a cure.
Only 53 days to go!

Matthews Army's Fundraising Page

Sophie McEvoy

My page:

In November 2015, Matthew was diagnosed with a brain tumour. In January this year, after a successful craniotomy, where the majority of the tumour was removed, he was told that the remains of the tumour were a Grade 3 anaplastic astrocytoma. This is a rare malignant brain tumour, and the causes for this are still unknown. 

It is now six months on and after 33 rounds of radiotherapy, Matthew is smashing cycle after cycle of chemotherapy, which will hopefully control the growth of the tumour.

Not only is Matthew fighting all of this, he has also decided he wanted to take on the marathon!

So in April 2017, Matthew along with Sophie Mac, JMT, Queen McLean & Jack Maca will be running the London Marathon in a fight against this horrible disease!

In order to raise as much money as possible we have organised a black tie charity ball on 29th October at The St John's Hotel

Thanks so much to everyone that is supporting us in Matthew's fight!!!
