All proceeds will go to the PPR Foundation, a local brain tumour research charity. 

Georgina the owner of Bijouled, who recently received the sad news that her husband has been diagnosed with a brain tumour, believes there needs to be more research and understanding of the illness. 

  • Every day 30 people are diagnosed with a brain tumour.
  • Brain tumours are the single biggest cancer killer of children.
  • The survival rate of 15% has not changed since the 1970s.
