The death of Spanish golfer Seve Ballesteros on Saturday, 7 May 2011, of an aggressive brain tumour has focused the world’s attention on an illness suffered by many ordinary people in the world. Survival rates for malignant brain tumours are still low, with around one in ten adults surviving for more than ten years.
- Born April 9 1957, Pedrena, Spain -
Seve left his footprint on the sporting world on golf.
There will never be another golfer quite like Seve Ballesteros.
Perhaps no other sportsman quite like him either.
- 7th May 2011, Dies at home in northern Spain at the age of 54
due to respiratory failure.
A sad day and my condolences to the family. A brave battle was
fought. Rest in Peace Seve - You will be missed by many.
Continued research is vital to improving the lives of people diagnosed with brain tumours.
