With a batch of his unique t-shirts at hand, Fixer Bradley Sowter spread the message of his brain cancer campaign around the city of Canterbury.

 

Bradley (19), who studies at the University of Kent in the city, is aiming to change the way people think about brain cancer after his father died of a tumour when Bradley was just two-years-old.

 

Setting up camp in the Gulbenkian Theatre Café, Canterbury, Bradley met young people from a variety of backgrounds to see what they understood about brain cancer.

 

He handed out t-shirts and answered questions from other young people as he aims to increase awareness of brain cancer.

 

“So many people were interested in what I was doing. They all liked the design of the t-shirts and I think a lot of what was said and done on the day opened their eyes a little,” he said.

 

“Unlike many other forms of cancer, there are no ways to self-diagnose or check for signs of brain cancer, and the symptoms are difficult to pin down. That’s why I think it’s important that people are more aware of the illness.”

 

On the day there were also a couple of guests ready to meet Bradley, including Kate Kershaw from the Brain Tumour Charity (http://www.thebraintumourcharity.org/) who is working with Bradley to promote his campaign.

 

And another Fixer, Chandos Green (17), turned up to help Bradley spread his message.

 

Chandos, who developed a brain tumour when he was three-years-old, will be helping Bradley spread his message in the future.

 

“It was really great to meet Chandos and see what he wants to do in the future,” he said. “He really got the message that I was trying to promote, and I think our aims have a lot in common.

 

“We’re going to work with each other and keep in touch to promote our campaigns even more in the future.”
