On the 4th of June 2013, on his 26th birthday, we lost Rudy to Gliomatosis Cerebri, an extremely rare and inoperable form of brain cancer.
Rudy has been an inspiration to his family and friends with all that he aspired for and achieved. He conducted himself with the kind of compassion and care that far belied his young age. His belief in helping those around him is something we would like to take forward.
The Rudy A Menon Foundation has been set up to help fund research on Gliomatosis Cerebri and other rare brain cancers. We are working with The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR), London, UK, where Prof. Chris Jones and his team are doing ground breaking research.
