A mum whose brain tumour has tragically returned after almost 20 years says she 'will do anything' to find a cure for the disease so she can live to look after her four kids. Emma Fox, 35 has now been waiting three years to have the growth removed which sadly returned in 2020, Wales Online reports.
The mum was first diagnosed with Oligodendroglioma, a primary central nervous system tumour, as a teen after she had a seizure on the bus home from school. As a young girl, she recalls feeling 'invincible' and did not worry too much about the treatable tumour but now as a mother to four young kids she is far more concerned about her health but is 'determined' she will beat it.
As a child, she had suffered with migraines and occasional seizures from a young age but they were put down to febrile convulsions. It was only after she was given an MRI scan that she received the heart breaking news that she had a large mass on her brain and was rushed into emergency service.
Emma, from Gwynedd, said: "Because I had been suffering from the age of about three or four with migraines and illnesses I always knew that there was something wrong. I think I was diagnosed on September 23 or 24 and I was in the Walton Centre (a neurology hospital in Liverpool) within four days. So it was pretty quick.

Emma said as a teenager she didn't really process the severity of her illness and wanted to go back
