Brain tumours are indiscriminate. They can affect anyone, at any age and their effects are life changing. Here are our stories:
In February 2018, Sara was diagnosed with a large Acoustic Neuroma/Vestibular Schwannoma. That April she suffered from a haemorrhage, and in May 2018 had surgery to remove the tumour. This left her profoundly deaf with no balance on one side and unable to walk. She had facial palsy, problems swallowing, and severe nausea. As well as hearing and balance loss, she still suffers with impaired vision and fatigue.
Sara continues to work on her recovery to prove it can be done, and shares her story in the hope that it will help others on a similar journey.
3 years earlier in July 2015, Danielle also had surgery to remove an
Acoustic Neuroma. Following the surgery she was left completely deaf in her left ear and needed to rebuild her balance and redevelop the ability to walk unaided. After spending 2 days unconscious and a week in hospital she returned home to continue her recovery. During the time of diagnosis, surgery and recovery Danielle was a Professional Footballer for Liverpool FC, and almost 3 months to the day after surgery made her debut in the Champions League. Now, she is continuously trying to share her story to help inspire people who are facing their own struggles in life.
For this reason, in June 2020 Sara and Danielle will be taking part in their first ultra marathon; 100km of hills in the Lake District to raise funds for this great charity
