My story starts with my Nan, who within a very short space of time passed away due to stage 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme (a type of brain Cancer).
As many people know, my Nan, was like a mum to me and, we had a special kind of relationship. So, when I found out that Nan was no longer going to be around, it hit me like a pile of brick. All we got was 5 incredibly short weeks from diagnosis.
Nan was originally misdiagnosed, due to the fact that doctors mistaked her symptoms for another illness. Which, lead to late diagnosis and, the unfortunate passing of my loving Nan. For that exact reason, it has lead me to sign up to this. It is very clear that there is still little information and knowledge on Nan’s type of brain tumour, and I feel (bitterly) that if the doctors had known more, then my Nan would be here with me now!
I for one and, I’m sure many more others do not want other families and individuals to suffer with this terrible illness.
I hope you’ll join me in my stand up to Cancer!
