Tilly’s AppealDonate now to helpHome Tilly’s AppealFour-year-old Matilda – affectionately known as Tilly – has a brain tumour. If it continues to grow, she could die.DONATE NOWSadly, brain cancer kills more children than any other disease. Tilly was just four months old when she was diagnosed with brain cancer. Because of the location of the tumour, surgery could not completely remove it. The only treatment available to Tilly is chemotherapy, to shrink her tumour and stop it from spreading. But the chemotherapy is not a cure and carries a high risk of damage to her growing brain. Tilly has already lost most of her vision and has developmental delays. Susan says, four-year-old Tilly ‘has the development of a two-year-old at this stage… She’s only been walking for just over a year. She doesn’t have a lot of confidence.’ We need your help so researchers can find a better treatment for brain cancer – ultimately a cure.DONATE NOW Recently, we launched the Centre for Child and Adolescent Brain Cancer Research. This innovative new Centre is a collaboration of world-leading researchers and clinicians. Dr Tim Hassall is Tilly’s oncologist, and a Program Director for this exciting new research centre. He hopes it can deliver breakthroughs in brain cancer treatment that are so urgently needed. Researchers and clinicians now have the facilities and resources required to find new ways to diagnose and treat brain cancer, and to improve quality of life for kids like Tilly. Dr Hassall says: ‘Too many times I’ve had to tell a parent that there’s nothing more I can do. This Centre brings us hope of finding an answer – and hopefully, a cure. I owe that to my patients and their families.’ More children die from brain cancer than any other disease. Over the past 30 years, so little has changed. It’s time to change that. It’s why we urgently need your help. Having a brain tumour is no way for a child to live. Please help us find a treatment that can stop it.
