Alistair Wainwright Memorial Fund
posted on 26 June 2017
Alistair died, aged 6, in May 2000 twelve months after being diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour known as medullablastoma. Brain and spinal cord cancers are the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in children under 15 and accounts for 25% of childhood cancers; research is important to improve treatments, reduce severe side-effects of treatment and improve survivorship.
Since Alistair died, Nigel and Debi have been raising funds to support brain tumour research at Birmingham Children's Hospital/Birmingham University with a specific request our donations should be used to support collaborative links with Nottingham University/QMC and these two hospitals are leading researchers in the subject of children's brain cancer.
