A big thank you to Team Maci

A big thank you to Team Maci


Fri 27 May

Maci's Ball organised in memory of Maci Craddock in March raised nearly £6,000 towards brain tumour research
All of the team here at YBTC would like to say a huge thank you to Team Maci, and everyone that has supported them, in raising a phenomenal amount in memory of Maci Craddock.
 
Maci’s mum Susan presented a cheque for £5,760 to us this month, raised at Maci’s Ball in March. Susan said:
 
“Maci was a happy healthy 13 year old, until August 2017 when she received the devastating diagnosis of a brain tumour known as a DIPG. For us as a family to hear that diagnosis was devastating.

"Since Maci gained her angel wings in October 2017 we have fundraised tirelessly to raise money to help children and families like ours, but to also fund vital research. There is no cure for these brain tumours, and very little funding into research. There has been no change in treatment for the last 40 years! Could you imagine hearing that if this was your child?

"We had so many questions and very little hope. We want to change that so no family has to go through what we did."



 
Our team (L-R), Naomi Abeysekera (YBTC Ambassador), Marie Peacock (CEO) and Ellie Sayers (YBTC Ambassador) along with our Community Fundraiser Jen were delighted to attend and support the event.
 
All of the money that Team Maci raises goes towards funding the Leeds-based Brain Tumour Tissue Bank for children and adults. The tissue bank can be accessed by world class researchers from Yorkshire and beyond to support their vital work to find treatments and ultimately a cure.
