About

Lions Clubs International (MD105) British Isles is working in partnership with Brain Tumour Research to raise £1 million to help fund game-changing research and raise awareness of the impact of brain tumours.
 

Brain Tumour Research is dedicated to raising funds for continuous and sustainable scientific research into brain tumours.
It supports one of the UK’s largest collaborative groups of laboratory-based scientists. 

 

At the end of the partnership, a laboratory in one of Brain Tumour Research dedicated research centres will be named after Lions Clubs International – British Isles, creating a legacy in recognition of the contribution of its members and their local communities to improve the lives of brain tumour patients and their families.

Lion Stories

Lion Story 1

Our eldest Daughter who died of brain tumour (Glioblastoma multiforme(GBM).

Sadly this form of brain tumour is a grade 4, which by the grade usually means you are  likely going to die from it.

Quite often within the first year of prognosis .

It is a hideous disease and one of the common brain tumours unfortunately.

Our daughter was first  diagnosed at age 39 ,

having first become ill whilst in Spain on holiday with her 2 young children and her husband.

Lion Story 2

So why am I supporting The Lions Brain Tumour Research Appeal?
Well, May 2017 saw me as fit, healthy, busy wife, mum of 2

(daughter just graduated from university and about to embark on a career as a teacher at an International School in Bangkok,

son about to go into his second year at college and onto university) working as a clinical nurse specialist in the NHS.


Why did life suddenly change for me and my family then?
I started to experience a very intermittent, sharp, pulsating pain at the top of my head.

This lasted seconds and then went. It sometimes occurred when I was bending down but not always.

I had no other symptoms that I was aware of.
