Quinta do Lago Golf Event in support of the Seve Ballesteros Foundation
“Seve’s experience brought a much needed spotlight onto brain cancer and Cancer Research UK was honoured to join forces with his Foundation to work towards our shared goal of beating brain cancer. It’s a huge challenge but one that Seve was committed to making a reality.”      Harpal Kumar, CEO Cancer Research UK

This golf event will also support the Champalimaud Metastasis Programme based in Lisbon, Portugal. The CMP Foundation has commenced its research in cancer by launching the Champalimaud Metastasis Programme in collaboration with some of the world’s leading centres of research and learning.
26 & 27 April 2013

Ambition

     Each year tens of  thousands of people are diagnosed with brain                and central nervous system tumours. Although the outlook varies               greatly between different types of tumour, the current overall                    survival rates for malignant brain tumours are poor, only 15% of                people will survive for five years or more after their diagnosis.

     Beating brain tumours by supporting world-class research
     Seve set up his Foundation in partnership with Cancer Research UK
     in 2009 to raise money for research into brain tumours.

     Cancer Research UK is the world’s largest charity dedicated to
     cancer research. Their doctors and scientists have contributed to
     19 of the top 20 drugs used to treat cancer patients worldwide.

     Within the field of brain tumours, Cancer Research UK contributed
     to  the discovery of the drug Temozolomide. It is used worldwide to           treat people with the most common type of brain tumour. Many                  thousands of people have benefited from treatment with this drug.

Why research is needed

     There are around 100 different types of brain tumour and the
     tumour type, and where it develops, varies with age. Treatments
     that can be offered to patients will vary depending on the location,             size and type of tumour. This complexity increases the need for
     good quality, broad-ranging research.

     With your support we will achieve Seve’s ambition and change the              outlook for people diagnosed with brain tumours across the world.
