Sam animation

Sam plays an important role in helping parents and teenagers understand the signs and symptoms of a childhood brain tumour.

Please watch the below animation and share the page on your social feeds, and with friends and family, to ensure as many people as possible know the signs and symptoms of a brain tumour.

Who is 'Sam'

Each of the ten symptoms is represented by a different, easily recognisable, version of Sam.

Sam is called 'Sam' in memory of Samantha Dickson whose parents developed the idea of HeadSmart with Professor David Walker, Paediatric Oncologist and HeadSmart Clinical Lead.

We would like to thank Content Creatures, for helping to develop the Sam animation.
