My story

[p]As many of you know I was diagnosed with a brain tumour 5 months after our close friend Ali Smith. I was fortunate (relatively speaking!) as my tumour was slow growing but our beautiful friend Ali's was an aggressive brain tumour called GBM. We both had surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. She fought it bravely for 16 months but lost her fight on 2nd January 2017. We are raising money in Ali's name to help research in to improved treatment for this devastating disease which has no cure. Half of the money will go to Brain Tumour Research which is working on new treatments and ultimately a cure for GBM and the other half will go to Astrofund who supported me during all my treatment. We will be doing the Hever Triathlon on 22nd September and mostly will just be hoping we reach the finish line! Please consider supporting us.[/p][p]Vanessa Fewell, Kate Grantham, Toni Young and Adrienne Bentley [/p]

Sorry. Your email got lost whilst I was traveling and I realise I'm too late to incentivise but I think you probably didn't need any! I'm so impressed with your path to recovery. Lots of love Bruce
