We know two families whose children have been diagnosed with brain tumours; surely one of the worst things any parent can hear.[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; font-family: Verdana; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000; min-height: 14.6px;"[gt][span=font-size: 12pt; -webkit-font-kerning: none;] [/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; color: #00aca1; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #00aca1;"[gt][span=font-size: 12pt; -webkit-font-kerning: none;]Thomas' Fund at CCLG is raising funds to support research into low grade glioma, a type of childhood brain tumours.[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; color: #00aca1; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #00aca1; min-height: 13.8px;"[gt][span=font-size: 12pt; -webkit-font-kerning: none;] [/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; color: #555555; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #555555;"[gt][span=font-size: 12pt; -webkit-font-kerning: none;]Our friends' son Thomas was a lively and happy little boy who enjoyed his bikes, swimming and going to the beach. At just over 18 months old Thomas was diagnosed with a tumour. He passed away in November 2015 at the age of 4.[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; color: #555555; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #555555;"[gt][span=font-size: 12pt; -webkit-font-kerning: none;]Since his death we have learnt that Thomas did not respond to treatment because he had a newly recognised type of tumour - disseminated oligodendroglial-like leptomeningeal tumour of childhood. It has yet to be classified on the WHO grading scale and is often hard to distinguish from low-grade glioma. The diagnosis of these tumours is notoriously difficult and due to their rarity there has been very little research done on either the tumour characteristics or which treatments are effective. It is a progressive disease with no effective treatment at the present time. Thomas’ tissue is the first of its type to be banked with CCLG and so we hope to help raise funds into more research for effective treatments and to help current treatments to have fewer side effects.[/span][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; color: #555555; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #555555;"[gt][span=font-size: 12pt; -webkit-font-kerning: none;][lt]br /[gt][/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; color: #00aca1; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #00aca1;"[gt][span=font-size: 12pt; -webkit-font-kerning: none;]Get involved[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; color: #0000ee; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #0000ee;"[gt][span=font-size: 12pt; -webkit-font-kerning: none; text-decoration: underline;][url=https://www.facebook.com/ThomasFundCCLG/]Thomas' Fund on Facebook[/url][/span][span=font-size: 12pt; -webkit-font-kerning: none; color: #555555; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #555555;] [/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; color: #0000ee; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #0000ee;"[gt][span=font-size: 12pt; -webkit-font-kerning: none; text-decoration: underline;][url=http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/charity-web/charity/displayCharityCampaignPage.action?campaignId=2624&charityId=1000011]Make an online donation to Thomas' Fund[/url][/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; color: #551a8b; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #0000ee;"[gt][span=font-size: 12pt; -webkit-font-kerning: none; text-decoration: underline;][url=http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-web/fundraiser/chooseFundraiser.action?charityId=1000011&charityName=Children's%20Cancer%20and%20Leukaemia%20Group&campaignId=2624&back=displayCharityCampaignPage]Start fundraising for Thomas' Fund[/url][/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; color: #0000ee; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #0000ee;"[gt][span=font-size: 12pt; -webkit-font-kerning: none; text-decoration: underline;][url=http://www.cclg.org.uk/make-a-regular-donation-to-a-Special-Named-Fund]Set up a regular donation to Thomas' Fund by Direct Debit[/url][/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; color: #555555; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #555555;"[gt][span=font-size: 12pt; -webkit-font-kerning: none;]You can make a donation by cheque, payable to CCLG, and sent to us at [url=http://www.cclg.org.uk/Donate-offline-or-pay-in-money][lt]span style="font-size: 12pt; -webkit-font-kerning: none; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #0000ee;"[gt]this address[/span][/url].
