The Brain Charity – Liverpool: www.thebraincharity.org.uk

When first diagnosed, one of the things I did was to look for support groups and I found one in Liverpool. It was run by a different charity but held at The Brain Charity building on Norton Street.

If ever you need perspective on life, visit a support group for brain tumour sufferers. I felt like a phoney and I don’t mind admitting, I cried like a baby. By comparison to the experience of others, my condition felt like an insignificance.

Having met these people and as my thoughts began to clear about how to respond to my situation I made contact with The Brain Charity to share my thoughts and ideas and needless to say, they could not have been more supportive. They even went as far as to publish these two articles:

I want to say a big thank you to The Brain Charity and to the people I met at the support group. Coronavirus means that the group is unable to meet and that is a huge loss. Here’s hoping that the coming months and subsequent lifting of lockdown leads to a re-establishing of the meetings.
