Mothers and Daughters help to raise £330,000 for vital research into high-grade brain cancer
Medical oncology consultant Dr Paul Mulholland is spearheading a pan-European research programme to improve research into Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most common and aggressive type of primary brain tumour.
The new initiative has been established thanks to £330,000 donated by the Mothers and Daughters Committee – who organised a fundraising dinner at Quaglino’s attended by some 400 supporters – and the Joseph Levy Foundation.
The funding will be used by Dr Mulholland, who is Director and Educational Supervisor at the UCLH Cancer Institute and Mount Vernon Hospital, to fund clinical trials and promote a better understanding of how new chemical agents work in GBM.
The Mothers and Daughters Committee chose to support Dr Mulholland’s work after their founder and Life President Celia Abrahams was diagnosed with GBM.
