I started volunteering for Brain Tumour Support after the charity supported me and my family following my meningioma diagnosis. After several operations I am now partially sighted.
I wanted to give something back so I volunteer at events and I help spread the word about the charity whenever I can. I have manned stalls at several local events – I love talking to people and telling them about the charity. I have also taken part in an all-day Zumba event and I have modelled in two fashion shows for the charity – that was so much fun!
I have been on BBC Radio Bristol twice in the last two years, telling my story and explaining what a difference Brain Tumour Support makes. I really enjoyed that. I didn’t rehearse what I said; I just spoke from the heart. Now I just really want to be on television!
Volunteering is uplifting and keeps me positive. I love raising awareness and sharing all the lessons I have learned on my brain tumour journey.
I hope it makes a difference to others with brain tumours.
