Dr James Lynam's Story
My name is James Lynam and I am a Medical Oncologist specialising in treating patients with brain cancers with chemotherapy. Unfortunately, I see first hand the devastation that brain cancer causes to people and those around them. I have been supporting the Mark Hughes Foundation from the start and have seen the concrete benefits of what they are doing. They not only support research to improve the outcomes and life expectancy of patients with these horrible tumours but also invest in support services like the Mark Hughes Foundation Brain Cancer Care Nurses who have improved the management and care of my patients no end.
