We are thrilled to be able to share inspirational stories from our fundraisers for the John King Brain Tumour Foundation.
Richard Sullivan and the Project21forlife
21 people every day are diagnosed with a brain tumour in England every day, and it is the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40.
Following a devastating diagnosis of a brain tumour, Richard Sullivan was inspired to set up project21forlife. Grateful for the outstanding treatment provided by the surgeons at St George’s Hospital, Tooting, and the ongoing excellent care at the Royal Marsden – and mindful that less than 3% of cancer research funding annually is allocated to brain tumour cancers – Richard is determined to make a difference.
Having undergone surgery for his brain tumour, Richard was discharged from St Georges on 21-12-21.
21 known as the Key to Life is the theme to create a range of fun activities – linked in any way to the number 21 – to raise vital funds and make a positive difference in the lives of many brain tumour patients – all culminating on the 21st of June annually.
The objective of project21forlife is to create a unique platform that provides individuals or groups of all ages to participate in raising funds in an enjoyable and creative way, all with the theme of 21.
Their aim is to identify 21 family and friends that are willing to commit to raising £2100 each by 21st June.
What will you do …? Run 21 miles? Bake 21 cakes? Hold a sport or quiz competition with 21 teams or for 21 hours? The opportunities are as endless as the creativity of the human brain…
Together you can make a big difference and have huge fun!
