Since our inception we have been focusing on reliable methods of delivering drugs and therapeutic devices through the blood brain barrier to where they will do most good. Together with our sister organisation, Wobbly Williams, we stage spectacular and very different events to raise the money required to advance the research that we believe will make the difference.
Bryn Williams set up Funding Neuro as the registered charity to which people can donate after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease aged 36. To read Bryn’s story and the history of the charity, which started with Wobbly Williams, please click here.
Funding Neuro is urgently raising the £250,000 required to accelerate drug development and advance the research that professionals strongly believe will make the difference.
We are very sad to tell you that beautiful little Daisy passed away on Monday 17 November. Daisy has played a huge part in giving hope to other children with this devastating condition. She was the first child to have the CED system implanted, to allow repeated infusions of chemotherapy. Daisy is an inspirational little girl who will always have a special place in the heart of everyone that met her, including all of us here at Funding Neuro. Our thoughts are with Daisy’s family at this very difficult time.
Daisy Brooks is 6. On 3rd May 2014 her family were given the devastating news that Daisy was suffering from a DIPG brain stem tumour and that she would quite soon begin to slip away.
We are now raising funds to support the experimental trial that Daisy is part of, and to advance the development of drugs that could cure this terrible condition, giving hope to Daisy and children like her.
