The Tudwick Foundation provides grant to The Robin Cancer Trust for Cancer Education
"It was a delight to reflect on how the support of the Tudwick Foundation has allowed us to have such an incredible impact on young lives across Essex and Suffolk - and I am very excited with what we will achieve over the coming months in the community reaching students with our Cancer Education Programme." - Toby Freeman, The Robin Cancer Trust
The Robin Cancer Trust was founded in 2012 by the Freeman family following the untimely death of their son and brother, Robin Freeman, aged just 24.
Robin was diagnosed in the prime of his life in 2011 with a Mediastinal Germ Cell Tumour (a grapefruit-sized tumour in his chest). Following 10 months in treatment, including several rounds of chemotherapy and a stem-cell transplant, he was told there was nothing else his medical team could do. He passed away surrounded by his loved ones on December 10th 2011.
His family promised him that ‘he would never just be a photograph on the wall’ and that something good would be born of his tragedy. Robin inspires us to raise awareness, reduce embarrassment and save young lives through the early detection of germ cell cancers.
