Spring 2015 update
The Brainbow service, which is funded by the Anna's Hope, Camille's Appeal and Tom's Trust charities, continues to go from strength to strength. The service is reaching more children across the East of England all the time, and 18 months after launching there are already lots of success stories as a result of the team's multi-disciplinary approach to rehabilitation for children with brain tumours and their families.
Brainbow currently only has funding guaranteed for another 18 months, and safeguarding the future of the pioneering service that Camille's Appeal has helped to create is incredibly important.

It’s been some time since I last blogged about Camille and her progress post treatment; it seemed that back in May, updates were becoming more and more irregular and it was a good time to take a break. However, eight months is a long time and lots of significant events can take place, especially when trying to overcome the effects of a brain tumour.
Camille’s Appeal is the children’s brain tumour charity specifically focused on the support and welfare of children under the age of five.
Under current treatments, children are likely to undergo three treatments in an attempt to cure them of this horrific illness, all of which have a devastating effect on the bodies of these small children. Chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy will in many cases leave the child with disabilities making an independent life very difficult.
Camille’s Appeal wants to help these wonderful children and their families get as close to a normal life as possible. The focus of the charity is to work closely with the NHS to ensure that each and every child is given the maximum amount of care to lower the risk of disability and to create and improve rehabilitation care across the United Kingdom.
Please help Camille's Appeal through donations, fundraising and awareness create a better life for children with brain tumours.
