I recently had the privilege of being invited to the
2019 World Summit of Brain Tumour Patient Advocates, held at the National Institute of Health, Maryland, USA.
I presented a workshop session focusing on how Levi's Star offers educational support and guidance to children living with the effects of a brain tumour. 25 countries from five continents attended the conference and it was a fantastic event, highlighting the great work being carried out worldwide by medics, researchers, charities and patient advocates. Levi's Star was proud to be part of the conference and part of the community working tirelessly on behalf of brain tumour survivors, to help ensure research, treatment and long term support continues to progresses. The event was truly inspiring and thank you to Kathy and Gordon for including Levi's Star Children's Brain Tumour Charity.
This one was for you Levi xxx

Doctorate research into how children with brain tumours are supported at school is going well. Vicky has successfully completed year 1, 2 & 3 of a Doctorate in Education and is currently very busy in year 4. We are excited about this much needed area of research as it is directly informing practice within schools.
Levi’s Star aims to disseminate findings across the UK and internationally, as we recognise the importance of the quality of survivor-ship for children and young people who have survived brain tumours.
