Brain tumour survivors in Wales are battling for better services and treatments to help improve survival rates of the disease.
Today, The Brain Tumour Charity launches it's manifesto which calls for a series of measures around awareness, diagnosis and treatment with the aim of doubling survival from brain tumours and halving the harm caused by the disease.
Around 700 people in Wales are diagnosed with a brain tumour every year. Incident rates of brain tumours in Wales are higher than the rest of the UK at 23 per every 100,00 according to Cancer Research.
David Payne from Pontyclun was diagnosed with a brain tumour in October 2010 and was given a life expectancy of 12 months.
Since then he has exceeded this after undergoing three craniotomies, radiotherapy and chemotherapy and six years later is in a stable condition.
