The Cameron Buchanan Fund

The Cameron Buchanan Supporter Group is raising funds for The Brain Tumour Charity, inspired by Cameron who is living with a brain tumour

I woke up one morning in November 2010 with a “dead left leg". It got worse over the day and my arm started to go numb. I went to the doctor who thought initially it was a stroke but on further investigation I was diagnosed with a glioblastoma. It was a severe shock as I had never been ill before and it was all so sudden.

The tumour was too small to operate on and in too dangerous a location so it was blasted with radiotherapy and chemotherapy. I am very lucky that I live near the Western General hospital in Edinburgh.

Due to the effects of the treatment I lost the use of my left side and ended up in the hospital and then in rehab for a total of two months. I received excellent care and my many questions were and continue to be answered.

The tumour has shrunk and I am steadily improving and am able to work again and enjoy life.
