Durelle, Heather

My name is Heather and at the age of 38, I was diagnosed with a Meningioma brain tumour.

With the loving support of my family, the Brain Tumour Foundation and a fantastic team at the London Health Sciences Centre, I am doing well mentally and physically.
I would also like to thank everyone at my Brain Tumour Foundation support group; you helped and continue to give me hope and strength. This special hat was made by my sister who attended all of my support group meetings.
Thank you all for your love and support.
