Jakes Foundation was in the top 1% of fundraisers on Justgiving for 2014 thanks to all our fundraisers mentioned on these pages and many more that have donated outside of the events. We need your continued support to raise awareness of the symptoms of brain tumours so that no-one has to suffer the devastation of losing their child or loved one to this horrible cancer.
