Mrs Farrington-Smith said: “I cried when I heard the news. It is such a great honour.
“It made me realise the enormity of what has been achieved in the last 15 years.I feel blessed that so many patients, families and supporters choose to fundraise and campaign alongside us. They keep me motivated.
“We have always been so completely focused on finding a cure for brain tumours and now, more than ever, we have such hope for the future.I know that, together with our supporters, we will find a cure.”
