Hi, I'm Claire!
I help people affected by a brain tumour, whether it is cancerous or benign. ( Tumor if you are not in the UK ). I am here for sufferers, Survivors family or friend. My goal is to
have a place for people anywhere in the world via social media.
In 2011 social media was only just getting going, and there were very few places to find support online unless you searched the web.
Why the heck would I want to get involved with brain tumours? Well, because being told you or your loved one has ‘a brain tumour’ is a life-changing event, whether it is cancerous or benign.
I was diagnosed with a brain tumour when I was just 25 in 2008, and I know the struggles that come with this devastating diagnosis.
I started Aunty M Brain Tumours on the 23rd May 2011. It was my 3rd Cranniversary. I wanted to celebrate my 3rd year since my brain surgery (craniotomy) and start something new. I started on
Facebook than Twitter and then onto all other kinds of social media platforms.
