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.

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
