Additional Info

It was a privaledge to meet Laura and hear her story. She became one of The Brain Tumour Charity's sixteen Young Ambassadors as a direct result of her experiences with her mum who sadly died of a brain tumour in 2009. In the time it took to spot her tumour it was already too late and her symptoms worsened considerably, she also began to suffer a great deal of pain. Within a few months she had died. Today brain tumours remain the biggest cancer killer of the under 40's including children with only 19% of sufferers surviving for 5 years or more.
