Christmas Appeal 2017
Christmas is a time for celebrating and this year we are celebrating the lives of pituitary patients sadly departed. Many families across the UK face the heartbreak of spending Christmas without their loved ones. This Christmas we are asking for donations to celebrate their memories.
Families such as the Hatch’s. “My son Alex lived a happy fun-filled life. He always had a positive attitude and a generous nature. He loved sport, comedy, his friends and family and above all else he loved life; His favourite one-liner was ‘Go big or Go home’. Alex had a tumour on his pituitary gland and unfortunately, Alex, was tragically taken from us far too soon at the tender age of just 25. If you could please donate to help celebrate the memories of patients just like my son then I know that the money they generate can enable them to be there for future generations of patients, which many of you may be”.
George Hatch, Alex’s father
Or the family of Nicola Hartley who tragically passed away this year aged just 24.
"Our 24 year old daughter/sister/girlfriend/family member/friend suddenly passed away recently from a DVT in her leg, which caused clots in her lungs, this was due to having "Cushings" which was brought on by a tumour on her pituitary gland.Following Nicola's sudden passing we want to raise awareness of this condition to as many people as possible, and hopefully in her memory we will be able to do this, and hopefully save someone's life"
Sally Hartley (NIcola's mother)

If you can spare anything this Christmas then every penny would be greatly appreciated.
