We’re all about changing the odds of paediatric brain cancer, to make brain tumours go the way of the dinosaurs. This is why we we fund brain projects in the areas of research, care and development – to fund the science to end brain cancer and support patients in the meantime.

For 16 months, Connor’s brilliant mind, strong body and gentle soul faced off against an ependymoma. Like many others, his brains and brawn gave it all to fight against the poor odds. But on April 20, 2013, Connor’s own battle ended. Inspired by his spirit of Aeternum Fortis, we created the RCD Foundation as a tribute to him and other brain tumour fighters.
