The family of a six-year-old boy who died of a brain tumour are urging people to sign a petition calling for more research and funding into the illness.

Stanley St Peter’s School pupil Levi Ringer died just six weeks after being diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2006.

His family have teamed up with brain charity Brain Tumour Research to lobby MPs.

More than 50,000 people have so far signed the e-petition.

Levi’s death inspired the launch of charity Levi’s Star, which helps children with brain tumours and their families. A blossom tree and memorial plaque dedicated to Levi have also been installed at Stanley St Peter’s after pupil Maddie Cullen won a design competition. To sign the e-petition, visit www.petition.parliament.uk/petitions/105560.
