Your story: “Back in 2012 I was having trouble walking and standing and had a visible tumour in my neck. It was not until I had a pet scan that it was discovered I had a tumour in the spine. In January 2013 I had 18 hours of surgery to remove both tumours and had to learn to walk again. I was subsequently diagnosed with agoraphobia, anxiety and depression and have been fighting hard against these daily. Unfortunately the pain and weakness in my left side has meant I need to use a wheelchair to get around. I have since set up my own charity that makes and sends blankets to those diagnosed with cancer across the UK. I have also applied to start training as an Occupational Therapist due to the encounters I had with OTs during my treatment and recovery.”
