Guest posted a topic in Events and ActivitiesLast year on 26 March 2016, with my previous character SayaX, I created the Brain Tumour Awareness Party. I was amazed by the response and the kind support of the community. This year I would like to raise the issue again. CANCER is not always Pink. Here in the UK March is Brain Tumour Awareness month. Brain Tumours are cancer that is responsible for killing the most people under the age of 40, yet only 1% of cancer research spending in the UK goes towards researching brain tumours. Brain tumours are typically harder to spot even when you do go and see a doctor. They will usually start with constant headaches and double vision, which are hard to diagnose. Also, due to the position of a brain tumour, it is hard to treat. Operations are usually not an option, and neither is chemotherapy. Radiotherapy can often help slow a growth and in rare occasions leave the growth dormant or shrink it. This is important to me because a brain tumour has affected my life in a very real way. Back in early 2015, my late wife was diagnosed with a brain tumour. It was devastating news which turned our whole world upside down. It is the main reason I have come to 3DX, to escape, to keep my mind active, not to overthink things. Sadly, last year my wife ended her fight with a brain tumour passing away. I would like to raise awareness of this horrible cancer, and I would like the 3DX community to be a part of that. I am arranging a second Brain Tumour Awareness Party on Saturday 4th March 2017 running from 5 pm to 11 pm GMT. There will be 6 DJs who are free to play any genre of music that they wish. It is up to the DJ if they want to take music requests. My good friend Xanar will be hosting as well as DJing. My good friends RedMelisande, MrsCandice, Epithany, and LauraTWK, will also be DJing. I have so many wonderful friends that I would have loved to have DJ, but I didn't want to go over 6 hours. If you love music, would like to have fun and support a good cause, then please join us for what will be a special night. The only request I make it that you wear a hat to show your support, however, this is optional, and your attendance is what is most important! I look forward to seeing you all there and if you have any questions just send me a message, and I will be happy to answer.
