In May 2010 my husband Alan was diagnosed with a very aggressive Oligoastrocytoma Grade 3 malignant brain tumour. He received 30 days of radiotherapy and some chemotherapy but sadly passed away in March 2011. Since then my family have organised and supported a number of fundraising events for the charity.
In 2017, I became a committee member of Brainwaves NI to try to help other families who had received the same devastating news as ours.
I helped to form a subgroup of members in the Mid Ulster area to enable those members to connect with each other and hopefully those meetings/events will continue in the future.
