Survivors of Childhood Brain Tumours

Hi I am a brain tumour survivor and new to this forum


Hi my name is Nkechi. I'm 25 years old and survivor of a intracranial germinoma suprasella hydrocephalus malignant tumour. I was diagnosed and admitted to GOSH when I was 9. They were unable to remove the tumour. I had chemo and radiotherapy and received the all clear in 2013. I have multiple hormone deficiency so have been on a series of hormone replacement medication, which I have been told are life-long.

Hello Nkechi and welcome to the community!Two years ago, my son was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor when he was 2.5 years old. He has been through surgery and radiotherapy. Seeing stories like yours give me much hope for his future. I hope you stay well and get all the help you need to realise your dreams and to achieve anything YOU want to achieve.

All the best to you and your family :))
