Thank you for visiting Stevens Fighting Fund.
We have set up this website to raise funds for Steven to have life saving endoscopic brain surgery in the USA.
Steven is 25 and has a rare malignant brain tumour which is located in the very centre of his brain.
Treatment in the UK has so far been unsuccessful and we have come to the point where there is not much more that can be done.
Surgery here is not considered to be an option due to the tumour being in the deepest recess of the brain, the pineal area and access via open brain surgery is extremely dangerous, even life threatening.
We refuse to give up hope and therefore we have carried out many hours of internet research and have discovered The Skull Base Institute in Los Angeles, USA, where the surgeon, Dr. Shahinian carries out brain surgery endoscopically, a minimally invasive approach done through a small incision and following the brains natural pathways to access the tumour and remove it. The aim is to go in and remove the tumour with the minimum disturbance to the brain.
The following pages will give more information about Steven, his condition and his fight so far.
Steven means the world to his family and friends and we will do everything we can to get him the treatment that he needs. His courage and positive attitude through all that he has already been through has been amazing.
We would like to thank you for taking a look at Steven’s website and hope that you will be able to support us.
We will be having many fundraising events which will be posted on the website as they happen.
Please help us to make this happen for Steven.
