Nicki's fund for Brain Tumour Research

David Hopkins, known as Did to many and husband to Nicki and Dad to Dylan 25, Lydia 22 and Sydney age 10, was diagnosed in Sept 2020 with the most aggressive form of brain cancer Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) grade 4 this left Did and his family absolutely devastated, they were told he would be lucky to get 12 months. Did fought a very brave journey, winning as he called it with determination and quality of life to make as many memories as possible till sadly passing away at the age of 46 on 6th Nov 2021 at home with his loving family. All Did wanted was to start and make memories during his illness and he got to do just that. Did an avid Scunthorpe United fan from around 12 years old started going to games home and away, one memorable game was Wigan away when a group of young lads, including Rick his brother and cousin Phil, nearly missed the train and on arrival found a pub and lads been lads still nearly missed the start. Many a trip followed and in later years, Wembley and home games with all his children. Did managed to get to his last game on 25th Sept.

 Brain tumours are indiscriminate; they can affect anyone at any age. What's more, they kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer... yet historically just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease. One day someday we have to try and change that and this is what Teamhopkins Winningfordid fundraising group wants to try help support. Do you want to join us in making a difference? We are raising money in aid of Brain Tumour Research and every donation will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to Nicki, family and friends
