Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer.
On the 4th November 2019 Dad aged 56 was rushed to Kings Hospital in London with a bleed on his brain he was diagnosed with a brain tumour which was operated on immediately.
A few weeks after the operation he had a large infection to his wound, this resulted in a part of his skull having to be removed.
Whilst recovering from this and waiting to start Immunotherapy a CT scan discovered a further 3 tumours less than two weeks on the 2nd of March 2020 my dad passed away in Margate Hospital in Kent.
For those who knew my dad Jonathan was an incredibly sporty man. From cycling through Europe and completing 5 marathons and over 10 half marathons. We all experienced some amazing things together. We shared a passion for Chelsea football team, golf, tennis, long distance cycling, running, climbing the 3 peaks.
We now want to turn my dads passion to achieve things into helping others who are going through this terrible illness.
During the course of the next year Jonathan's family & friends will be taking part in a number of different sporting events and challenges in memory of my dad.
