Having had personal experience from the disease after my father passed away due to a brain tumour, I want to raise awareness of the condition, and improve detection rates.
The awareness of brain tumours needs to be fixed. There have been global campaigns to raise awareness of prostate, breast and testicular cancer, but not much has been done for brain cancer. There hasn’t yet been an early detection of brain cancer, which needs to be rectified.
I was too young to really understand what was going on when my father died. It was hard to grow up with the absence of a father. It was hard to explain to friends when I was little why my father never picked me from school. I think it would have been enjoyable to have met him and do what a father and son should do.
I hope to raise awareness about brain cancer. It is hard to diagnose because there are no self-checking systems, and it is sometimes misdiagnosed.
Through my project, I have designed a range of t-shirts to raise awareness of brain cancer which can be worn by people of all ages to any occasion. Cancer is a word not a sentence.
