Charlie's Story


“Now I can’t ride my bike, go swimming, or run with my friends at school.”

Treatment has severely affected Charlie, who was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2015.

“Charlie’s had eye surgery, he’s had facial surgery, his hair won’t ever come back on top, he can’t walk properly and his pituitary gland is damaged so he can’t grow anymore.”

Watch to see Charlie and his parents, Toni and Mark, share their story for Stand Up To Cancer.
