Help us make a valuable contribution to an incredibly important charity that’s very close to our hearts

We have chosen The Brain Tumour Charity & Lizzie’s Fund because Angus our son’s class friend Lizzie passed away in November 2018.

Lizzie was diagnosed in February 2018 with an incurable brain tumour and passed away a week before her 10th Birthday in November 2018. Lizzie was a big fan of our crisps, so we thought it would be nice to make a charity bag in memory of Lizzie and raise awareness of this wonderful charity.

Lizzie’s Story

On 9th February 2018, after just a couple of weeks of minor symptoms – some double vision, a slight squint and generally just a bit wobbly – Lizzie, aged 9, was diagnosed with a brain tumour. It was the eve of the half term holiday and we were about to depart for a girls holiday of a lifetime, meeting up with her Dad, Mark, in Vietnam, who was away competing in a classic car rally. Within a few hours, Mark was on a plane home. The second MRI confirmed a horrifying diagnosis, Diffuse Midline Glioma (DIPG), an inoperable brain tumour of the brainstem for which there is currently no effective treatment. DIPG affects around 25 children in the UK each year, with an average life of expectancy from diagnosis of just 9 months.

Lizzie died in our arms on 15th November 2018, just a week before her 10th birthday. In the months after diagnosis, Lizzie fought hard to keep her life normal. Throughout her treatment she attended school as much as possible, keen to see her friends and enjoy her favourite lessons. She got a much longed for puppy, an adored companion, and we spent time doing lots of fun things.
