Josie Phillips
 

It took doctors five years to diagnose Josie with a grade 2 astrocytoma brain tumour. Four years later and a year after graduating from Medical School, Josie faced the devastating news that the tumour had become malignant. After two craniotomies, chemo and radiotherapy, and a round-the-UK sailing challenge to raise awareness, Josie, has had clear scans for the last five years. Now the mother of two young girls, Josie is determined to live life to the full for as long as she can.
