Our Christmas Wish
It was unimaginable to be diagnosed at the age of 30 as, to me, a brain tumour was synonymous with a death sentence. I’d just come back from my honeymoon with Luke and we had visions of a happy and long life together.
“But now my goals are to be among the 20% of people who live for more than five years after a brain tumour diagnosis.” – Katie
Katie is looking forward to precious time with her husband Luke and their 18-month-old son Eli this Christmas.
Time is particularly precious for the young family as Katie’s future is far from certain. She was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2016, and has endured surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Katie has now been told her tumour is high-grade. She lives with the knowledge that she may not be here to see her 40th birthday.
“I want to raise awareness of this devastating disease by launching a Christmas appeal and I hope to inspire people to donate to this vital cause over the festive period,” she said.
