INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the website of the Alison Fracella Research Trust (AFRT).  We are a registered UK charity, formed in 2005 specifically for the funding of research, treatment and elimination of a particular brain tumour known as Glioblastoma. We exist for sufferers, families and all health professionals dedicated to the treatment and care for this form of brain tumour, but recognise that all forms of brain tumour are worthy of further analysis, research and information dissemination.

Following personal tragic experience, we decided to establish this charity and to immediately make available to others any knowledge that we had gained.

On our journey, as a suffering family and group of friends, we found it virtually impossible to go to a “one stop shop” to find out more about a condition that we had never previously heard of. We hope therefore that this web-site in some way overcomes the previous shortfalls we encountered and that this single repository of information provides knowledge that all people connected with brain tumours crave for.

Is this just another web-site? Yes and we make no apologies for that. Is it accurate? Yes, it needs to be. Is it useful? That is for others to determine, but remember that brain tumours wait for no one. Speed is paramount in diagnosing and treating any form of brain tumour. Therefore having one point of reference in a web-site like this facilitates that speed.

We welcome additional content, technical support, funding, applications for research sponsorship and advice in order that we may all improve our global understanding of this tragic condition. We really are dedicated to and passionate about passing on all information concerning Glioblastoma and we are determined to provide as much support as possible to sufferers and their families.

There are several ways of getting around our website.  If you follow the next page/previous  buttons at the bottom you will trace through all the pages, with progressively more detailed material. At any point the menu along the top will help you get back to the main topics, and in some places there will be menus to the left or right of the page that will lead you to related items.
