MARCH man Shaun Saunders (27) raised a massive £1,265 to be split between Headway Cambridgeshire and Brain Tumour UK from a recent successful coffee morning.

Shaun is recovering after undergoing major surgery at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge to remove a second aggressive non-cancerous tumour.

The coffee morning was held at the Rose and Crown pub in March.

Said Shaun: “I would personally like to thank all the companies in town that donated over 50 raffle prizes and to all the people that turned up and supported this event so well and helped raise all this money.

“My treatment is going really well I have two-and-a-half weeks left to go.”

Shaun is undergoing both radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment as a trial. His tumour was caught early when Shaun had a scan in February 2010 after suffering an epileptic fit in his sleep which picked up the tumour and it was operated on in March 2010.

But he needed a second operation after tests in April showed the tumour had returned and was more aggressive. Although doctors believe the operation was a success, Shaun has to go through the follow up treatment as a precaution.
