Brain tumour research is seriously under funded (less that 2% of national funding) and for this reason we have decided to set up 'Super Sam's fund'. Super Sam's fund is linked directly with 'the brain tumour charity' 'thebraintumourcharity.org' and we aim to raise as much money as possible towards researching high grade paediatric brain tumours.

In August 2015, Sam then aged 4 was counting down the days until he started school, on his first day of school he started with what we now know are classic signs of a brain tumour, morning vomiting and headaches. Less than 2 weeks after Sam started school we were given the devastating news that Sam had a tumour in the back of his brain. Sam underwent a 7 hour operation to remove the tumour and initially recovered well, just over 2 weeks later he wasn't quite himself and he underwent more operations, as time went on he deteriorated more and spent his 5th birthday in the intensive care unit at edinburgh sick childrens hospital.

After a couple of weeks in ITU sam was well enough to return to a ward but the injury his brain recieved meant he had to learn to walk again. Sam has been amazing, he can walk unaided but at the moment is still unable to skip, jump and run, things that normal 5 year olds should be doing.
