Story

On the 11th February 2015 I had a VP Shunt to help the fluid drain from my Brain as a Tumour (medulloblastoma) was blocking the fourth ventricle. The Tumour was successfully removed on the 12th of March 2015. Thirty sessions of Radiotherapy was to follow. The Brain Tumour and the Radiotherapy has left me with a Nystagmus (wobbly eye & double vision) in my left eye, poor fatigue, poor balance & co-ordination, poor sleep, memory loss and slow processing. But I'm still able to drink beer and eat food!

Thanks for reading my story and hopefully donating!
