Darcy was 21 months old when she was finally diagnosed with a brain tumour, but her mother had to fight to get medics to listen.  Despite months of morning vomiting, right-sided weakness and balance issues, her parents felt they were fobbed off with unconvincing diagnoses and made to feel like they were being over-protective.
