I'm a lurker but you awesome people introduced me to Magdalen Berns. She's just posted a video stating that she has a brain tumour. I am absolutely gutted.

If you're on here, Magdalen, I'm absolutely rooting for you and get well soon (unmumsnetty xxx).

Oh no! Poor Magdalen. Sending lots of positive thoughts and vibes your way. flowers

So sorry to hear that. I have been following her in twitter and am a huge fan.

I love her! I'm so gutted to hear this! sad

I'll keep my fingers crossed for her - I just watched her video talking about it - she has such a good attitude, I can virtually see her taking the deep breath and listening calmly so she can make whatever decisions she has to make in the coming weeks and months.

My neighbour had a frontal lobe brain tumour. They pulled it out of her nose (somehow) she's fine now.

I knew someone else who had a brain tumour not a lump as such but "mixed in" to the brain so hard to treat. She lived with it and seizures for 10 years.

There's evidence to suggest links to artificial sweetners...

Anyway. Huge huge shame for MB. I too was a recent fan, I really really pray she recovers to the full and active feminist bombshell that she is.

Oh no, she's amazing. She has such a brilliant way of explaining everything related to gender.
I hope she makes a full and fast recovery.

Oh, she is fab! I love her videos, so precise and well argued!

Get well soon Magdalen! flowers

I got so upset I had to stop watching before the end. Shall donate to her Patreon, though it can't be much. But I know from experience that being ill and skint is even worse than being ill. That and keep sending her love and encouragement, poor darling. sad

Really saddened to hear this on youtube, but so impressed by seeing a person showing genuine bravery in the light of uncertainty. ill be thinking about her and looking for a good outcome.

PoochSmooch Sun 23-Apr-17 18:58:18

Goodness, what sad news. She has a great attitude though - love what she says about wanting a video of the surgery because it's interesting.

If you see this, Magdalen, then hope it is of some small comfort to know that you have a load of internet randoms totally rooting for you x

I can't believe that. I'm absolutely gutted for her.

Magdelen - we are all behind you, sweetheart.

I have absolutely no doubt that you will be taking down the patriarchy well into your dotage.

I will be telling my future grandchildren that I watched you from the very beginning.
