Help others like Skye to live their lives by supporting
research & treatment of childhood brain tumours
Skye was diagnosed with a brain tumour on 27 August 2013 and those close to him were constantly in awe of his strength of character and fortitude in fighting a horrible disease. Cancer is so often thought of as an adult disease. Our experience has taught us otherwise.
Brain tumours present a life changing experience. In children they are very rare, and unfortunately the prognosis is not very good. Current treatment involves Surgery, plus a combination of Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy, but each of these have devastating consequences in terms of side effects, both in the short term and over the long term. Research is trying to establish new innovative ways to treat childhood brain tumours, but this requires funding.
Blue Skye Thinking is a Charity which supports research so that all children diagnosed with brain tumours will have a better chance of survival and a better quality of life post-treatment. The Charity is run by volunteers and all money donated goes directly to the forefront of Research and Treatment.
