*** New campaign launches during Brain Tumour Awareness Month 2018 ***
Olivia’s dad David and her neurosurgeon Donald are part of a new JUST GIVING campaign! Please support them here
During Brain Tumour Awareness Month this March parents of children with brain cancer and leading children’s neurosurgeons are backing our new Big iMRI Appeal.
The Big iMRI Appeal is the newest phase of our £4 million four-year Big Appeal for Nottingham Children’s Hospital and it will provide new state-of-the-art MRI scanning equipment for children with brain tumours that can be used during life-saving operations.
Brain surgery is complex and intricate and our dedicated teams at Nottingham Children’s Hospital will benefit from being able to use this new intraoperative MRI – called an iMRI – during surgery to achieve the best possible outcomes.
Nottingham Children’s Hospital, based at QMC, is the leading regional centre for children’s neurosurgery, with over 1,000 MRI scans on children each year including those with life-threatening brain cancer.
“It is incredible to think that with modern treatment 70 percent of children can be cured of their brain tumours.” Donald MacArthur, Leading Paediatric Neurosurgeon at Nottingham Children’s Hospital.
