Removal of a brain tumour - affectionately named Krampus - left Helen with a titanium plate in her skull and a broken eye lid. She wants to raise vital funds for the charity that helped her accept her new normal and is helping many others on their journeys.

Julie Harvey was diagnosed in October 2016 with a grade 4 brain tumour and sadly passed away in February 2019. She set up her fund with a determination to raise awareness, help others and "shout about brain tumours", and it is a lasting tribute to her generosity and spirit.
