Raj was two and a half years old when he was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Over five years later, after enduring six operations, chemotherapy, proton beam therapy and immunotherapy, his mum, Suki was told Raj had three months left to live.

“Raj was oblivious. He was happy and smiling. The last few months were tough but we made some beautiful memories. On April 20th 2018, my beautiful baby boy died in my arms at home. I am so very proud of Raj. I miss him so much and life will always be empty without him. My only hopes are we find a cure someday so no other family has to face this reality. A cure really can’t wait.” Suki, Raj’s mum, February 2019.

Brain tumours kill more children than any other cancer. We’re working hard to raise awareness of this and, with your help, fund vital research to develop better treatments.

An announcement from our CEO, Dhivya O’Connor, confirms the need for research into the treatment of brain tumours and has pledged a further £1 million towards it.
