The John King Brain Tumour Foundation is a tiny charity whose vision is to improve the outcomes for patients with brain tumours, diseases and other disorders. The next important piece of equipment for which we are fundraising is to purchase a Stealth Autoguide Robotics Guidance Platform for St George’s Hospital Neurology Department, which can’t be funded by the NHS. This state-of-the-art equipment will enable surgeons to perform precision, minimally invasive cranial surgery including biopsies, electrode placements, laser ablations and tumour removal. The robotic guide will improve both patient and surgeon safety and surgical success, resulting in better patient outcomes, including longer life expectancy, reduced recovery times, improved post-surgical quality of life etc.
Once purchased, the robotic guide is expected to benefit over 1,000 cranial surgery patients each year at St George’s Hospital.
With your generous support, we can improve patient outcomes for generations to come.
We have 50 spaces available for the Abseil – Entrants will need to pay a £35 booking fee and pledge to raise a minimum of £500 in sponsorship.
Once registered participants will receive a welcome email, more information on the event and instructions on how to set up your individual JustGiving page and join the main team page. All participants will be given a 1-hour time slot within which their abseil will take place, and we ask that you turn up at least 15 minutes before to register.
