A Chislehurst musician suffering from a terminal brain tumour has composed a World Cup song.

Steve Dawson, a professional trumpet player, composed the song with musicians from all around the world in a bid to raise money for charity and fund a life extending drug called Avastin which is not available on the NHS.

The 55-year-old father of two was unable to hear due to the pressure from the tumour when he first thought of the idea for the song.

After undergoing surgery to restore his hearing, Steve listened to the song for the first time after he had written down his musical ideas and given them to other professional musicians. His first comment was “I need to fix the bassline.”

Steve’s wife Donna said: “This is obviously so much more than a song for us as a family. If Steve’s World Cup Song could help unite and uplift people whilst raising funds to extend his life and the lives of many other brain cancer patients it would be a dream come true.”

Steve needs to raise around £7,000 to be able to buy Avastin.
