The day before Brandon’s first birthday he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour. He was given little hope of survival.
His parents, Janie and Brad, were utterly devastated.
After spending nine months trying to find out why their baby boy was so ill, they now had an unimaginable choice to make – share a few precious months with Brandon, or risk life-threatening surgery, hoping he might live a little longer.
It’s the lack of treatment choices available for childhood brain cancer that makes your donation this Christmas so important. Brain cancer survival rates have barely changed in 20 years.
That’s why we want to raise $750,000 by Christmas.
To help our researchers find life-saving treatments for cancers like Brandon’s.
Brandon’s parents chose to take the risk with surgery. Janie remembers being told, “He’ll never eat and drink. He’ll never run, and he’ll probably never walk.”
Incredibly, Brandon has reached all those milestones and this year he turned 21.
Brandon is not giving up and we hope you won’t either.
