These pages have been set up to raise awareness of our mission to raise £30k for Headcase Cancer Trust.
Colin Smith, a true blue, has been diagnosed with a brain tumour, type GBM 4, August 2012. The Prognosis is not good, Terminal 14-18 months from diagnosis. Colin is keen to raise money for Headcase Cancer Trust, the only charity that is looking to find a cure, 100% of all money goes to the research programme, and therefore it’s a great cause.
It isn’t about me (Tony Russell for those that don’t know) or even about Dan, my son, and me doing anything of note, this is all about Colin and Headcase. But as we know it needs a ridiculously nutty thing to be the focus for people to dig deep and cough up.<
My son and I are going to have a go at completing an Ironman in Nice. Nuts though it seems there was a bright suggestion last year that we should do an Ironman, the one in NICE, on the 23rd June 2013. Its is not going to be a walk in the park, and although both Dan and I have done Triathlons before this is the Big One.
There are lots of ways people could help us raise our target, the best and simplest is just donate as much as you can through out Justgiving page (coming soon).
However if there are ways you can spread the word and raise some more cash Headcase Cancer Trust needs every penny.
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and deadliest of malignant primary brain tumors in adults and is one of a group of tumors referred to as gliomas. Classified as a Grade IV (most serious) astrocytoma, GBM develops from the lineage of star-shaped glial cells, called astrocytes, that support nerve cells. GBM develops primarily in the cerebral hemispheres but can develop in other parts of the brain, brainstem, or spinal cord.
