My name is Marie and I’m the mother and carer of my son Jordan, who has an inoperable brain tumour.
When he was 11, one night he complained of a massive migraine and when he started vomiting I knew we had to take him to the hospital. It was a regional hospital and because the weather was so bad there was hardly any one waiting to be seen. We had an excellent emergency doctor who decided, after seeing Jordan, that just to be safe Jordan should have a cat scan. When they told me Jordan was having a “little bleed on the brain ” I told myself to remain calm and it was the best advice I could have given myself.
