It was just over 13 years ago when Emily Hackworthy came home from school to find her mum Angela having a fit.
At the age of 11, her life was turned upside down when Angela was rushed to hospital and a scan revealed she had a brain tumour.
After an operation to remove as much of the tumour as possible, it was diagnosed as benign, but she has since received radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment and last December was told the tumour was cancerous.
Emily, now 24, helps care for her 56-year-old mum alongside her father John, 66, at their home in Gobowen.
During Brain Tumour Awareness Month, she has spoken out about her mum's condition, the need for more funding for brain tumour research and a support group in Shrewsbury which has proven to be a lifeline.
