Glioblastoma is the worst form of brain cancer, known by medics as the Terminator, and it particularly targets 12-18 year olds. My friend's daughter Charlotte died in February this year, aged 19 years and one week, and we have set up Charlotte's BAG in her memory.

What makes us unique is that we have a direct link into a research centre based at Kings College Hospital, London, and every single penny we raise will go directly into research.

Charlotte was exceptional; her vlog was viewed by over a million people worldwide helping other young cancer sufferers and their families come to terms with their condition, and she won awards for her work from Cancer Research UK and Clic Sargent.

BAG stands for Battle Against Glioblastoma and reflects Charlotte's love of handbags, the higher end the better!

In the words of Charlotte's consultant: "the trouble with brain cancer is that it keeps coming back. But if you can beat brain cancer, you can beat all cancer".
