We’re very proud to support Tom’s Trust, a small charity providing life-changing support for children diagnosed with brain tumours.
The charity was set up in 2011, by Debs and Andrew, who lost their son, Tom, in November 2010, just seven months after he was diagnosed with a malignant medulloblastoma brain tumour.
Today, Tom’s Trust’s team of clinical psychologists care for over 200 children and their families. They are the backbone of the child’s long-term rehabilitation, providing support from the point of diagnosis, through treatment and beyond. Vital support is also given to families who have sadly lost their child to the condition.
Young people in the East of England who are diagnosed with a brain tumour are treated at Addenbrooke’s Hospital by the Tom’s Trust team. Children like Dylan, who was diagnosed with an incurable tumour when he was just 11 years old.
The team supported Dylan and his family through family therapy sessions and memory making exercises, and bereavement counselling when Dylan sadly passed away.
Global’s Make Some Noise is supporting Tom’s Trust’s amazing team of clinical psychologists at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, so they can continue providing their vital service to many families.
