Surrey County Council leader’s daughter dies

Published by Local Democracy Reporter Rebecca Curley at 11:48am 17th July 2019.

The daughter of Surrey County Council’s leader who was receiving end of life care at Princess Alice Hospice has died.

Emily Oliver was diagnosed with a rare brain tumour 18 months ago. 

The 21-year-old and youngest daughter of council leader Tim Oliver passed away in the early hours of Monday morning (July 15).

Cllr Oliver and his wife Debbie were at her side. 

Emily was diagnosed in January 2018 with a glioblastoma brain tumour – a rare and aggressive type of tumour with little known cures or treatments. 

She set out to raise funds for The Brain Tumour Charity to provide hope and help and on her 21st birthday in October last year launched a campaign – Emily Oliver’s Fighting Fund. 

Cllr Oliver is taking part in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 sportive cycling event on 4 August to raise money and awareness of the campaign and for the The Brain Tumour Charity and spoke out recently about his daughter’s illness to help raise the profile of the charity. 

Emily was admitted to Princess Alice Hospice in Esher a few weeks ago after several trials with treatments. 

Cllr Oliver has set up a fundraising page to continue raising money for the charity.
