Support brain tumor research

Jelle van Tilburg

Still to go

from € 500.000 (2%)

Jelle van Tilburg is 34 years old and has a brain tumor. During his awake brain surgery he played the Pink Floyd classic 'Wish you were here' on his guitar. "If it were up to me, I would like millions of people to see this video and urge all viewers to support brain tumor research.”

Jelles operation was performed by neurosurgeon dr Arnaud Vincent and his team at the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Dr Vincent: "Brain cancer is one of the most difficult cancers to treat and occurs relatively often in young people." Dr Vincent aims to develop a very promising new imaging technique (Functional Ultrasound) to better visualize brain functions during brain surgery. And to better distinguish the tumor tissue from normal brain tissue. Dr Vincent: "This could be an enormous step forward for the prognosis of patients with brain cancer, but also for the quality of life of brain tumor patients such as Jelle.”

Join Jelle in his support for dr. Vincents brain tumor research and donate now.
