Our friend Donna is 29 and has a terminal brain tumour (in technical terms it’s an anaplastic oligodendroglioma - or a glioma in the frontal lobe). Unfortunately the treatment has stopped working so we’re determined to give her the best birthday (her 30th!) and Christmas possible.
How are we going to do this? We’re hoping all Donna’s favourite actors, writers and musicians will help make this happen by sending her happy birthday/merry christmas messages. This blog will detail our daily attempts to get these people to listen to us! Read our latest posts.
