Dame Tessa Jowell was given a standing ovation after issuing a rallying cry for all cancer sufferers in a speech that brought the House of Lords to tears months before her death. The Labour veteran, whose death was announced this morning, stunned the Lords into silence during the heartfelt speech in which she spoke about her terminal brain tumour and urged other patients not to give up hope of living decent lives. She also highlighted the shocking underfunding in neurological cancers, which receive only 2% of research monies and have had no new vital drugs for the past 50 years. Baroness Jowell, whose voice cracked several times during her House of Lords speech in January, The Labour peer,, called for more cancer treatments to be made available through the NHS and pleaded for further opportunities for "adaptive trials" in which patients can undergo different treatments.

Recently, I was invited to visit the Brain Tumour Research Centre of Excellence at Plymouth University, one of only four centres in the UK. I was proud to see such a progressive research centre in our home city finding treatments and cures for brain tumours. This week, Specsavers stores in Plymouth, Plymstock and Saltash gave their support to Wear a Hat Day, raising awareness and collecting essential funds for Brain Tumour Research. Staff and customers sported their finest hats, caps, crowns and every type of headgear you can imagine. It was great fun but with a serious message. During my tour at the Plymouth Centre of Excellence, I learnt that brain tumour research receives only one per cent of the national spend on cancer research. Yet it is estimated that 16,000 people a year in the UK are diagnosed with a brain tumour, and there are 120 different types of brain tumour. The good news is that thanks to advancements in technology used during an eye test, your optometrist can be … [Read more...] about How experts in Plymouth are heading up brain tumour research
Like many mums, when Karen Yardley started feeling ill and exhausted, she told herself she was fine and just got on with it. That’s what mums do, isn’t it? Her symptoms including migraines, insomnia, fatigue and mood swings got progressively worse, but GPs repeatedly put her symptoms down to the menopause . Over the next two years, she was back and forth to GPs. She woke up every morning with a severe headache, couldn’t sleep and had heaviness in her arms and legs, which made it difficult to walk at times. She was sent home with HRT and anti-depressants and told it was all down to her “time of life.” She said: “I was coming up to 50 and just took doctors at their word when they said I was going through the menopause. “But my symptoms got worse and worse. “It felt like no one was listening to me - I felt unheard and lonely.” Finally, after begging for help, Karen was referred for an MRI scan. “I was desperate," said … [Read more...] about Doctors dismissed brain tumour mum as menopausal and gave her HRT
A MUSSELBURGH teenager is teaming up with her dad and the family dog for a year of challenges inspired by her mum, who is living with a brain tumour. Madelaine Powell, 16, will brave a tandem skydive at St Andrews in June and her dad Steve, 50, is walking 1,200 miles with their two-year-old Italian gun dog Arno in aid of The Brain Tumour Charity. Mum Susan, 47, was diagnosed in 2001 with an oligodendroglioma brain tumour when Madelaine, also known as Maddy, was just six months old. She underwent surgery a few months later and recovered well. Maddy, a pupil at Musselburgh Grammar School, said: “In 2009, a routine scan showed further changes to her brain, resulting in radiotherapy in the January and February of 2010. “Being only nine years old at the time, it was difficult for me to grasp the concept of why mum was losing her hair. “Then again, at the age of 15, when I was able to comprehend the extent of my mum’s illness and being fully aware of the … [Read more...] about Musselburgh teenager’s challenge for her mum fighting brain tumour
