Cancer patient visits scientists working on finding cure after fundraising efforts

A brain tumour patient from South West London has been given a chance to visit the scientists working to find a cure for the condition.

Philip Scard from Twickenham was diagnosed in 2015 and has helped to fund research.

He’s since raised £22,000 for the charity, Brain Tumour Research.

He told Helena about the impact it had had on his life and what it meant to see where the money he’d raised was being used.
