Welcome to the Robin Menary Foundation for Brain Tumour Research
Robin was a strong, healthy, happy and very sporty 36 year old, looking forward to the birth of much longed for twins, when, without warning, he was diagnosed with a Grade 4 Glioblastoma brain tumour, one of the deadliest forms of cancer. Only 17 months later, on 24th August 2011, Robin died aged just 38.
Cancer did not define Robin, but it brought to the fore everything that was already there – courage, dignity, strength, kindness and determination. Although he was taken from us long before his time, we know that he has influenced everyone who has ever known him. He was a special human being and he will live on in every one of us.
It was always Robin’s intention to raise funds for brain tumour research when he was well again and we are determined to do this in his memory. It is this which keeps us strong despite the unbearable grief, and it is our dearest wish that someday someone diagnosed with this type of tumour will be told they can be cured.
