Let’s Talk About Brain Tumours
Let’s Talk About Brain Tumours is a podcast created by the community for the community, the hosts are members of the community who have been personally affected by a brain tumour diagnosis, either their own or a loved ones diagnosis, who have come together to help people share their experiences and raise awareness.
Join us as we talk to those who have been diagnosed with a brain tumour, their friends, parents, partners and children as we talk about all things brain tumours.
In the Spotlight episodes you can hear from staff at the charity and professionals who are working to change the outcomes for those who are diagnosed with this terrible disease and how we are doing this.
Andy TudorAndy was diagnosed with a Meningioma five years ago, ‘I went from having no knowledge of brain tumours to brain surgery in just six weeks. Once my treatment was successfully completed, I vowed to try to help others who have been impacted by the diagnosis and treatment of a brain tumour and who are looking for emotional guidance and support at a time of dire need.’ As well as working on the podcast I also volunteer with The Charity as a Digital Peer Support Volunteer ‘It’s a wonderful feeling being able to help others, especially as I can relate to those with brain tumours due to my hard-won experience’
Anna BlyszkoAnna is one of our amazing Young Ambassadors “Having lost my father to a brain tumour back in 2011, when I was just 13 years old, The Brain Tumour Charity is a cause that is incredibly close to my heart. I feel like I’m finally in a position where I want to share my story and turn a very sad situation into a positive one.”
Chandos GreenChandos has been involved with the charity since he became a young ambassador in 2016. Chandos was first diagnosed with a pilocytic astrocytoma when he was just three-years old, he had ha re-occurrence when he was six. He then remained in remission until he was re-diagnosed for the third time in June 2014. “After being re-diagnosed in June 2014 for the third time in my life, I knew I had to do something to support others living with a brain tumour. My third diagnosis came during my first year at university. In the time leading up to my last diagnosis, I knew I had a small amount of my tumour up there after my last operation 12 years prior at age six.
