Officially Lisa Connell
This Fundraising Group was set up to raise awareness of brain tumours, to improve outcomes for brain tumour patients and, ultimately to help find a cure.
Lisa Connell, who set up the Group, was diagnosed with a meningioma aged 26, after falling pregnant; sadly, she lost the baby. Having undergone Gamma Knife Surgery and some years later, surgery and radiotherapy when the tumour was found to be growing, Lisa now lives with regular painful facial spasms. Lisa was told she couldn’t have children as meningiomas can grow dramatically in pregnant women due to hormonal change, but amazingly she now has a miracle child.
