Fixer Headlining Brain Cancer
A University of Kent student, who hopes to raise awareness of brain cancer after the death of his father during childhood, has been featured on ITV Meridian news.
Bradley Sowter, 19, has designed a range of striking, unique t-shirts promoting his 'Piece of Mind' campaign.
After the death of his father to brain cancer when he was just a toddler, Bradley has made it his aim to raise awareness of the dangerous condition, and to ultimately improve detection rates.
He hopes as more and more people wear the t-shirts, his message will spread wider and wider, across the country.
The t-shirts also include a unique QR code which allows smartphone users to scan the code and follow the progress of Bradley's campaign on the Fixers website.
“There’s an annual budget of cancer research of around £500 million and less than 2% of that goes towards specific research into brain tumours – and that’s just not enough,” said Bradley who warned that the symptoms are vomiting and a dull, constant headache.
Bradley has started his Piece of Mind campaign in Canterbury – and has been working with the Brain Tumour Charity and fellow Fixer Chandos Green who has suffered a brain tumour himself. Bradley’s story will be told on ITV’s Meridian Tonight on Thursday 1st November.
