The Ollie Young Foundation

It was launched in memory of the brave little boy who lost his fight against an incurable brain tumour one day before his sixth birthday and only twelve weeks after first displaying symptoms. There was no available treatment for Ollie, no cure and no hope.

Where the money goes

Brain Tumour Research

Our ultimate aim is to find a cure or prevention from this awful disease that affects so many children and families. With over 120 different types of brain tumour, it is the biggest cancer killer of children. The majority of money raised funds targeted research at Portsmouth’s Cellular & Molecular Neuro-Oncology Research Group, we seek to increase patient life expectancy, improve quality of life and, ultimately, to save lives.

Support – Helen and Douglas House

Until a cure or prevention is found, children and families often rely on established hospices to provide much needed support through such difficult times. To this end, a proportion of funds raised will be directed towards an organisation close to our hearts, Helen & Douglas House, to help further this support.
