Thank you to the Daily Mail Australia for covering my story. If it helps even one person learn about Facebook support groups, proton treatment or government funding for lifesaving medical treatment overseas, it’s worth it.
The story is sadly very inaccurate regarding the advice from doctors at diagnosis.
I was not ‘told I would die’ nor that my ‘face would cave in’.
I had a cancerous tumour in the skull pressing on the brain, not brain cancer.
Although I was told by the major hospital that they couldn’t help me, they did refer me to a specialist neurosurgeon who they hoped could.
However the part about getting government funding and the amazing trip to eleven countries (31 flights) to see all my friends overseas is all true.
