ellie mai fund


The Ellie Mai Fund was  launched by John and Lisa Mowforth after the sad loss of their daughter. Ellie was diagnosed with a rare tumour known as a diffuse brainstem glioma in 2012.

Initially the fund was set up to raise money for Wish Upon A Star and the Brain Tumour Trust as a thank you for the support given to John, Lisa and Ellie.

The fund now functions as its own charity to help others who find themselves in a similar situation.
