We created this website to tell the story of Laura and her ongoing battle with the Grade 4 Brain Cancer; Glioblastoma. Laura was diagnosed in October 2018, at just 18 years old. Since then, we as her family, have been fundraising in order to raise money for the potentially life saving immunotherapy treatment she is having in Cologne, Germany.
Since Laura was diagnosed, we have had many people getting in touch to ask for advice for themselves or loved ones who have unfortunately received a similar diagnosis. So within 'Tips and Advice' we have outlined Laura's current treatments and all the supplementary things we are trying to help Laura, in the hope that we can help others too.
I am by no means a medical expert, but we have picked up a few pieces of advice during Laura's experience with cancer that may help others.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
