Welcoming Will

Welcoming Will's Way


Wed 02 September

Supporting patients and their loved ones across Yorkshire is at the heart of  Yorkshire’s Brain Tumour Charity and Will’s Way. Yesterday we celebrated coming together so we can do even more for children and adults living with, or affected by, a brain tumour across the region.
Will’s Way was established by a 15-year-old Will with help from family and friends who, in September 2016, was diagnosed with a Grade 2 brain tumour. They have been providing much needed financial support for families in Yorkshire ever since, with Will continuing to live life to the full.
 
Lisa Barker, Will’s Mum, said “We are delighted to merge with Yorkshire’s Brain Tumour Charity on what is our third anniversary. This is a real cause for celebration; the support we have developed will continue to grow. We have always said ‘Where there’s a Will, there’s a Way’ and this merge does just that; uniting together means we will create a stronger force to grow support across Yorkshire, ensuring we are there for people when they need us the most.”
 
All the money raised to date by supporters of Will’s Way will continue to be used to support paediatric and adult patients financially through dedicated grants, as well as funding vital research.
 
Marie Peacock, Chief Executive of Yorkshire’s Brain Tumour Charity said “Our two charities are passionate and proud about the support we offer. Covid-19 has had a huge impact this year and we have seen demand for our support services grow by 200%. Uniting together means we can continue to extend our reach into communities across Yorkshire. We are celebrating this exciting merge and very much looking forward to the future.”
 
The “Will’s Way” champion spirit will carry on with a new dedicated fund being set up for family, friends and the wider rugby community to continue to fundraise for the new “Will’s Way YBTC Fund” led by his parents Lisa and Ty.
