Von Hippel Lindau (VHL) disease is a genetic disorder. Those living with the disease can develop a series of benign and malignant tumours in the retina, brain and spinal cord, kidneys, pancreas, inner ear and adrenal glands. The condition affects around 1 in 36,000 people.
My partner Sian Howell has this condition and last year had to have spinal surgery to remove a tumour on her spinal cord. VHL doesn't get a lot of funding so we wanted to take part in Movember to raise money for a really worthwhile cause.
The VHL gene is involved in many other types of cancer and so research into this rare disease can help other types of cancer research as well.
Please give what you can and remember to gift aid your donation
