Motaquote Staff Wear Hats In Support Of Brain Tumour Research
Commenting on the event, Motaquote employee Robert Mumford said:
"I decided to support this charity as a result of being personally affected by a brain tumour. I have had numerous operations to try to remove a long-standing left-sided temporal cyst which became apparent back in 1991. Over the years I have received various treatments to combat this and have ultimately needed operations to try to remove the cyst, which would enable me to lead a normal life."
Robert added that three other members of his family had also been treated for brain tumour related complications.
A brain tumour reportedly affects and kills more children and adults under 40 than any other form of cancer. Around 16,000 people a year are diagnosed with this condition, with only 14% surviving beyond five years - 50% less than any other form of cancer.
