Welsh Three Peaks for GBM support
In the heat of the July sun, Jamie and a team of friends and family took on the huge challenge of completing the Welsh Three Peaks in loving memory of his father, Philip, and with the intention of raising funds to support others affected by a Glioblastoma diagnosis.
Jamie’s team of eight, and not forgetting the dog, climbed Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Pen-y-fan, walking a total of 17 miles in just 24 hours, and their wonderful tribute has raised an incredible £2068.97.
Jamie’s team challenge has supported the creation of a web-based Glioblastoma (GBM) resource designed to share information to promote conversations around treatments, dates for events, and stories from those living with a diagnosis of a GBM.
Helen Bulbeck, Director of Policy and Services said,
“We are so grateful to Jamie and his team. We know that there is a huge source of knowledge within the brain tumour community about novel treatments that would benefit people who are living with a GBM. We’d rather this information was in one place, to save people spending duplicative time looking for potential treatments, when maybe they’d rather be taking a walk in the sun, or planning their next break, or spending time with family and friends. Philip’s legacy will help so many others who are living with this devastating disease do just this.”
