Operation Teddy Bear. We Need You

Meet Fin...

In June last year, 10 year old Finlay Church was admitted to Birmingham Children's Hospital (BCH) with a suspected brain abscess.

Following brain biopsy surgery, Fin was diagnosed with a Grade 4 Glioblastoma brain tumour.

The brave young boy underwent major brain surgery to remove the tumour and then began a series of radiotherapy, chemotherapy and clinical trial treatments to prevent the tumour from returning.

Despite this, Fin along with his family and friends has raised over £19,000 for BCH and would like to do even more!

His new challenge now is to raise even more money, whilst attempting to break a Guinness World Record!

All funds raised from this record breaking attempt will be split between two specific charities, Birmingham Children's Hospital and Brain Tumour Research.

Brain Tumour Research has been added to Finlay's fundraising focus because despite more people under 40 dying from brain tumours than any other form of cancer, it receives only 0.7% of national funding. The charity are committed to setting up seven centres of excellence for research in the UK and ultimately trying to improve survival rates.
