When she was only 14 months old, Octavia was diagnosed with a brain tumour. This is her story.

1009 days left to donate

Donation deadline is March 31, 2022
In the days leading up to her diagnosis, she had been irritable, not eating, not sleeping and occasionally vomiting. She was displaying all the typical symptoms of a teething baby. It was only when her neck became stiff that we suspected something more serious might be wrong and she was admitted to the local hospital. Three days later and every parent’s worst nightmare came true when a CT scan showed a 4cm tumour in the middle of her brain and we were told she was dying and had days to live.

Within hours of the diagnosis, Octavia was transferred to Kings College Hospital and placed under the care of paediatric neurosurgeon Dr Bassel Zebian.

Dr Zebian and his team performed the first of three surgeries to remove the tumour using a new and pioneering technique. Unlike traditional forms of brain surgery which often require the removal of healthy brain tissue or a making a wide 2cm section through healthy tissue, this method minimises trauma to the brain and reduces the risk of future disabilities and side effects by making a minor 8mm slice through the tissue by using a Neuro Endoscopy unique modified by Kings to make this procedure.

Three surgeries and 12 months after her first surgery, Octavia has made a full recovery and is living proof the Dr Zebian’s technique not only saves the life of the patient, it gives them their life back and in Octavia’s case, the chance to lead a completely normal life.

The uniquely modified Neuro Endoscopy is a key piece of equipment used in all three of Octavia’s surgeries and without it, Octavia’s story would be very different. Unfortunately, Kings only have one of these Neuro Endoscopies which means there is a risk it’s not always immediately available for emergency cases like Octavia and limits the number of patients that can be treated and doctors that can be trained.

We can never repay the debt of gratitude we owe Dr Zebian and the team at Kings College Hospital for saving Octavia’s life but we would like to try by helping them save more lives. The 12 hours overnight before surgery Charlotte and I walked Octavia up and down the hospital corridors to help her find peace and sleep. That’s why on 10th May, exactly one year from Octavia’s last surgery, I will be re-living the 12 hours of overnight walking I did in the hospital by walking 50km from my home to my office overnight to raise £15,000 needed to buy Kings College Hospital a second of these uniquely modified Neuro Endoscopies. If you would also like to help, please follow the link to donate to help give other children like Octavia, a second chance at life.

Thank You

    Baz and his team have been just so brilliant with our son Jamie, who has a tumour in his brain stem and has had two operations over four years. The whole neuro team and all the nurses, carers and staff on Murray Falconer Ward have been nothing but positive and supportive through all of this. Many people visiting this page will have similar experiences - please consider supporting Kings by donating just a few pounds every month and GiftAiding your donation. Sorry to get 'political', but it's utterly abhorrent the way the Tories are systematically and relentlessly hiving off sections of the NHS piecemeal and bringing in privatisation in an insidious and underhand manner. Good luck on the walk tonight Richard and Charlotte - and a big hug for Octavia :)

    Baz and his team have been just so brilliant with our son Jamie, who has a tumour in his brain stem and has had two operations over four years. The whole neuro team and all the nurses, carers and staff on Murray Falconer Ward have been nothing but positive and supportive through all of this. Many people visiting this page will have similar experiences - please consider supporting Kings by donating just a few pounds every month and GiftAiding your donation. Sorry to get 'political', but it's utterly abhorrent the way the Tories are systematically and relentlessly hiving off sections of the NHS piecemeal and bringing in privatisation in an insidious and underhand manner. Good luck on the walk tonight Richard and Charlotte - and a big hug for Octavia :)
