“Brain tumours kill more under 40’s including children then any other cancer. Yet they don’t get the funding or exposure that other types of cancer get.
Since I was diagnosed in July, I’ve met parents who’ve lost children, parents who know they are going to die before they see their children grow up, and far too many young people fighting brain tumours.
When I went to London for my surgery, there was one lady on my ward (a dedicated brain tumour ward) who celebrated her 80th birthday there, everyone else was under 40 and all of us had young children.
All types of cancers should be receiving the same level of funding and recognition. More funding is desperately needed for brain tumours as they’re so hard to treat. If my tumour was anywhere else in my body, I would have been given either radiotherapy, chemo or both. But the brain is so sensitive to these therapies, it’s not used until absolutely necessary as it can cause more tumours elsewhere in the brain. So I didn’t any ‘just incase there are any microscopic cells left behind’ therapy. It’s a double edged sword.
