Has he suddenly become ill?

I don't know what to say that will comfort you, as it's a scary time for you. I read his book, and was inspired and amazed by his courage and positive attitude.
Keep going, you're all a strong family, am thinking of you all flowers

Hi, my brother also has an incurable brain tumour and has scans every 12 weeks. He has a scan next week and the results the following week, I'm taking him for both appointments. I hate the build up to each scan 😢 sending hugs x

sorry to hear that taylor, really hoping for positive results for your brother x

Thank you, scan today.

How are you doing? X

hi taylor we are good thanks. just wondered how your scan result was ? x

We don't get the results for a week, consultant has to look at it. Appointment is this Tuesday coming. One of the letters I read gave him 2-4 years, it's been 2 years since his surgery so I feel we are getting closer to the day they tell us the tumour is growing again 😟 thank you for asking. It's comforting to hear from other people going through a similar thing.
I sometimes feel guilty for finding things hard as I can't imagine how hard it is for him! X
