A message from The Brain Tumour Charity.. "Alfie Thomas is forever 6. He passed away in June 2014, less than a year after being diagnosed with a DIPG brain tumour.

His family refuse to believe that outcomes will be the same for children like Alfie in the future, and have been fundraising tirelessly to support our work, setting up Alfie Bear's Journey Fund with us.

Today we are beyond proud to say they have now raised over £100,000 inspired by their precious 'Alfie Bear'.

Zoe, Danny. Tyronne, Ryan and all your friends and family, we can't thank you enough. "

A message from HeadSmart... "Alfie was diagnosed with a brain tumour in July 2013 after months of symptoms including balance and co-ordination problems, sleep disturbance and abnormal eye movements. He sadly died less than a year later.

Alfie Bear's Journey Fund now support HeadSmart to ensure other children are dagnosed as early as possible. Zoe, Alfie's Mum, said: If we had access to a HeadSmart card at that time, I would have seen that Alfie had many of the symptoms. I cpuld have shown the GP and perhaps my concerns would have been taken more seriously.

HeadSmart is not only helping to reduce the chances of a child developing long-term dissabilities and, in some cases, saving lives, it's giving families precious time together.
