THE STORY SO FAR

Bryn began the fabulous ‘Wobbly Williams’ campaign and founded his charity, Funding Neuro, which funds research that will lead to treatments and cures for neurological conditions. Funding Neuro funds vital research focused on solving the frequent problems which hinder progress towards a cure and effective treatments for all conditions which affect the brain and spinal column.

Initially Funding Neuro are focusing on reliable methods of delivering drugs and therapeutic devices across the blood brain barrier to where they will do most good. Having already kick started a trial of delivery of a drug to treat Parkinson’s, the focus this year is delivery of chemotherapy to children with brain tumours .

Using revolutionary technology developed by Prof. Steven Gill, the trial’s objective is to deliver chemotherapy to all parts of the brain in stronger doses than can be taken orally to destroy the primary tumour and mop up the secondary satellite tumours. Funding Neuro is urgently raising the £200,000 required to treat ten children as a proof of concept and advance the research that professionals strongly believe will make the difference.
