DIAGNOSED WITH BRAIN CANCER: 18 MONTHS TO LIVE
Laura, who was studying a degree in politics, philosophy and economics at the University of Manchester, faced a life-changing reality at an eye examination in October 2018. The young girl in the prime of her life had brain cancer. And doctors gave her only 18 months to live.
11 CYCLES OF CHEMOTHERAPY, 18 WEEKS OF TREATMENT IN GERMANY, 2 MAJOR BRAIN SURGERIES…
According to The Times, while battling an aggressive form of cancer, the young girl became an inspiration to everyone by graduating from her school.
A social media post describing Laura Nuttall’s experience said she received a long applause at her graduation ceremony. The post read, “Laura’s journey has not been easy. She has been through a lot along the way, including 11 cycles of chemotherapy, 18 weeks of treatment in Germany and 2 major brain surgeries.”
NAMES LIKE MICHELLE OBAMA AND PAUL WHITEHOUSE STEPPED IN
Despite her illness, exhaustion from treatments and occasional despair, Laura kept going and showed the people around her what it means to be brave and determined.
Laura’s story has attracted so much attention that celebrities such as former US First Lady Michelle Obama and British actor Paul Whitehouse have contacted the young girl.
The British broadcaster BBC also stepped in to fulfill one of Laura’s biggest wishes.
ONE MORE WISH CAME TRUE: PRESENTING WEATHER ON BBC
Laura ticked a wish off her bucket list when she presented the weather on the BBC this week.
In behind-the-scenes footage released by the BBC, she was seen in the studio telling weather reporter Owain Wyn Evans: “I’m looking forward to this.”
“I never thought I’d be standing there doing the weather forecast, although I never thought I’d be doing a lot of the things I’ve done over the last few years,” Laura later told the Times.
“THERE ARE DAYS WHEN HE HAS DIFFICULTY GETTING OUT OF BED”
“We try to give Laura something to look forward to and it really helps to have a reason to get up every morning. Of course she has bad days when the chemotherapy takes its toll and she struggles to get out of bed. It’s really nice to know that there’s a great day out there waiting for her.”
