Last weekend the family of the popular Clydesdale CC and Scotland all-rounder Con de Lange launched a campaign to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity after news of Con’s condition was made public. Con was diagnosed with a brain tumour ten months ago and it has been a tough journey for the well liked Clydesdale player/coach and Scotland vice-captain.
Since launching the Just Giving Page the family has raised over £8,900 with the community coming together to support the cause.
Sarah Lindsell, The Brain Tumour Charity’s chief executive, said: “Our warmest wishes and support are with Con de Lange after being diagnosed with a brain tumour.
“We are so grateful that he and his wife Claire are fundraising for us to help us in our mission to defeat this brutal disease.
“Like Con, 31 people a day will be diagnosed with a primary brain tumour – that’s over 11,400 a year – and our five-year research strategy A Cure Can’t Wait aims to double survival within ten years and halve the harm brain tumours have on quality of life.”
