This project owes its existence to the persistent efforts of Anita Smith, who worked hard to better the lot of victims of brain tumor after she lost her 16-year-old daughter, Charlotte, to brain tumor in 2008.

Mrs Smith said, "This unique brain tumour tissue bank will allow better translation of complicated science into treatment for patients such as Charlotte. We are thrilled that through our fundraising, and with the support of brainstrust, we are able to leave a legacy that will help future generations of brain tumor patients across the UK."
