My name is Carol Harris and I live in Moira with my Husband Stephen and my 2 sons, Gareth and Jamie.
I was diagnosed with a Benign Meningioma Brain tumour in December 2014 and had my surgery in April 2015 at the RVH under the fantastic Neuro Surgeon Mr Abouharb and the Ophthalmologist Mr Lacey who worked together.
The location of my tumour meant that it could not be fully removed.
In April 2019 I had to undergo 6 weeks of radiotherapy treatment to try to stop any more growth. I have my MRI’s regularly to check on the progress of my tumour.
I came into contact with the Brainwaves Charity during my recovery and decided to join the committee as I found their support to be of great help.
It was good to meet and talk with people who were going through similar situations.
