Let me tell you what happened to me. On 24 May last year, I was on my way to talk about new Sure Start projects in East London. I got into a taxi but couldn’t speak. I had two powerful seizures. I was taken to hospital.
Two days later, I was told that I had a brain tumour, glioblastoma multiforme, or GBM.
A week later the tumour was removed by an outstanding surgeon at the National Hospital in Queen Square. I then had the standard treatment of radio- and chemotherapy.
