A former music producer from Hounslow wants to raise awareness of the importance of routine eye tests after being diagnosed with an aggresive brain tumour when visiting the opticians.

53 year-old Rob Tillen was given 15 months to live after being diagnosed.

His fiancé Annabel who has MS is fundraising for Rob’s treatment which would cost in the region of £350,000.
