Caroline’s Walking Challenge

caroline's walking challenge

To recognise what would have been Abbie’s 18th birthday, our General Manager Caroline Taylor has started a 1,000,000 step challenge as from 18th October 2022, and finishing on Abbie’s birthday-19th January 2023.

BTL-UK LTD supports #Abbiesarmy #charity -helping fight for a cure and provide hope for DIPG children. ‘Abbie’s Army’ is a children’s DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) brain tumour research charity, founded in loving memory of Abbie. 

There are over 120 different known types of brain cancer. DIPG or ‘Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma’ is the most fatal of all these brain cancer types.  DIPG grows in the PONS area of the brainstem making surgery impossible. Currently there are no approved or validated ‘data driven’ effective treatments or a CURE available. The average survival time from diagnosis for a child remains at just 9 months.

The current situation facing children with DIPG is UNACCEPTABLE! and cannot be allowed to continue.
