Diagnosed with an Astrocytoma and Hydrocephalus at 13, now a Brain Tumour Awareness Ambassador

Danielle McGriskin from Lisburn, Northern Ireland, was diagnosed with an Astrocytoma in 2011 when she was just 14yrs old. The hospital did not want to do surgery and said they would just ‘watch and wait’. The tumour was causing Hydrocephalus (water on the brain) which resulted in over 20 operations to help with it.

Danielle decided while she is going through her own battle she wanted to help others. And to date has helped other brain tumour research through The Brain Tumour Charity and raised well over £100,000.

Here is Danielle’s Astrocytoma story:
