Friday the 18th January 2013, my sweet little brother Tom’s life changed forever, he was unexpectedly diagnosed with a brain tumour. Everything happened so quickly and on the 23rd January he survived a very dangerous and difficult brain surgery. Although the surgeons were able to successfully remove the tumour we still received devastating news, Tom has Glioblastoma Multiforme which is an aggressive stage 4 cancer.
Over the next 9 months Tom will undergo many rounds of both radio and chemotherapy, he has delayed commencing his dream course for a year in film and television so he can concentrate on getting well and kicking this horrible cancers butt. Tom’s attitude is amazing he has remained positive and even while waiting for brain surgery was considering getting into pastoral care once well to help others when they receive similar news.
Oh and did I mention Tom is 19?
There is also a chance that he may be selected to undergo an advanced clinical trial overseas with the hope of healing him completely this would be a miracle.
Those touched by cancer know it doesn’t just take an emotional and physical toll but also a financial toll, his medical bills over the coming months are going to be extensive. My amazing friends and I have decided to rally together and raise as much as we can to help Tom and my dear parents.
Tom is one of the kindest, gentlest souls in the world and would do anything for anyone, this is a chance for anyone who wants to help Tom or is just touched by this incredible story of how fast life can change by opening your hearts and generosity.
We are planning a huge night of food and entertainment to raise funds for this incredible young man and need any help we can get. We would love any donations either financially or by donating goods or services for us to raffle or auction on the night.
Please get in contact with us if you can help or know someone who can over the coming weeks. Watch this page as we will start to provide information on his fundraising evening.
The support we have all received as a family has been phenomenal, please continue to hold dear Tom in your hearts.
With love and thanks,
Sarah Brewer (Proudest big sister ever)
