Brain cancer patient gives back with new business venture

2 min read

A Surrey brain tumour patient, who has set up an online clothing business, is donating a portion of his profits to help find a cure for the devastating disease.

Kevin Fisher, from Sunbury-on-Thames, established his brand, Resilience Bikes and Brains, about 18 months ago and is now selling the caps, beanies, t-shirts and cycling jerseys that make up his collection online, with 10% of his profits going to Brain Tumour Research.

The 44-year-old’s support of the charity comes following his shock diagnosis in September 2019.

Kevin had just driven home from a family holiday in Spain, with wife Kate and children Erin and Billy, when he became disorientated and started noticing problems with his vision. It was discovered Kevin had lost left-side peripheral vision in both eyes, and a subsequent MRI scan revealed a large growth on the back of his brain.


Following a debulking surgery, Kevin was told he had a grade 3 anaplastic oligodendroglioma. He went on to have six weeks of radiotherapy and two different types of chemotherapy over a period of 17 months.

The father-of-two, who is now self-funding private treatment abroad, wants to “give something back” by bringing hope to other brain tumour patients, which is how Resilience Bikes and Brains was born.

He said: “Since losing my peripheral vision, I’ve not been allowed to drive, so cycling’s become a way for me to get around as well as a form of exercise. I like going out on my bike and not having to think about anything. It really helps clear my head and makes me feel better.

“There’s also a lot of research that suggests the fitter you are, the better your body can cope with cancer treatment. I know my tumour will eventually return and, when it does, I want to be ready for it.”
