Hi, My name is Claire and the author of
A Brain Tumour's Travel Tale and Just A Girl And Her Thoughts.

I help people affected by a brain tumour, whether it is cancerous or benign. ( Tumor if you are not in the UK ). I help sufferers, survivors family or friend. My goal is to have a place for people anywhere in the world via social media.

I set up a social media platform called Aunty M Brain Tumours. People can connect on the Aunty M Brain Tumours Facebook Page or Twitter. There is also a private Facebook Group where you can speak to others and support one another.

Aunty M Brain Tumours was set up in 2011. Social media was only just getting going, and there were very few places to find support online for brain tumour sufferers, or survivors unless you searched the web hard.

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 told I had a brain tumour in 2008 when I was only 25. I had a 10cm Intraventricular Meningioma and had to go through surgery to have it removed. I know the struggles that come with this devastating diagnosis and the life-changing effect it can have on a persons life.


Claire's MRI Scan of her brain tumour in 2008
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 set up a facebook page to connect with others. That grew and I was soon on a number of other social media platforms with over 16,000 followers. In 2013 I was invited to be a radio presenter at a local station which was via podcast and was able to have a show dedicated to people affected by a brain tumour. I interviewed a number of people sharing their stories.

To show I am not just talking the talk, I also walk the walk. You can find me in a number of publications raising awareness for brain tumours. Such as The Sun, Choice Magazine, Best Magazine and Bella Magazine.

I wrote my two books to share my experiences and all I have learnt on my journey. I hope it will help others.
