Publisher's Summary

This is the diary of Claire Bullimore, a person who was diagnosed at the age of 25 with a life threatening intraventricular meningioma - in other words, a brain tumor the size of a grapefruit! It is not always easy for a person from the outside to see what is really happening to someone affected by a traumatic experience such as this. The book shows the true emotion of a person dealing with the hardships of a brain tumor, surgery, recovery, and then the scars inside and out. Written as a series of diary entries, this book will make you feel like you are there going through the journey. There is love, friendship, and courage - you will cry, laugh, and find things you didn't know before. This book can help families and friends or other outsiders to see what a brain tumor survivor really wants you to know.

Inspirational

I Highly recommend this book especially if you are either a brain tumor survivor or a family member needing to try to understand what we go through. Claire did a wonderful job in explaining all the ups and downs that many people face and some of us have more than others. How the struggles from the beginning misdiagnosis and the final event that brings your to the ER for a CT or MRI. This poignant story brought me back to a lot of memories that I had forgotten about. that I had also gone through along with Claire so I highly recommend getting this book and I look forward to the next book following Claire’s brain tumor travels. Exceptional and very good narration.

Lovely inspiring story

Would you consider the audio edition of A Brain Tumour's Travel Tale to be better than the print version?

Did read the print version but it was good to hear Claire's voice

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Made me laugh and cry

Any additional comments?

It shows the emotional and physical issues which come from having a brain tumour. Great way of raising awareness about brain tumours

Reassuring

Thank you Claire for taking the time to write this book. As a fellow brain tumour "survivor" I laughed and cried with you. The similarities in our journeys are uncanny. I hope one day I too find myself able to move forward and put my own experiences to good use.

fabulous

Fantastic patient perspective on life with brain tumour. Recovery and rehab can be challenging but it is worth all the hard work! Well done Aunty M
